The objective of this Coogee upper storey was to maximise the potential of the site to generate larger, sunnier and naturally ventilated spaces as well as providing improved access to amenities and outdoor areas.

The new roof over the new upper floor addition is simply pitched at different heights to allow for northern high level windows into the living space with the ridge running east to west. The split ridge height provides visual interest to the building’s street elevation and allows northern sun to enter into the top living area via high level windows. 

See how its clerestory windows light up the upper and lower floors:
