Ground floor addition to an existing pole platform house

A ground floor addition converts a modest sized existing house with external access into a generous beach side family home. With a challenging south facing sloping site, existing structural issues and a tight budget to contend with the design seeks to maximise the amount of natural light and ventilation available to the new lower floor level. Providing the family with 6 bedrooms, office and two living spaces with good access to outdoor living and ample storage. The new lower level has the potential to be somewhat self contained.
