Located in Papil, Burra, Sjoglimt is an existing dwelling house extended in 2009. The form of the extension was designed by to minimise its impact on the original house and to tie into the different heights of both the original house and an existing extension. This is achieved by sloping the roof of the new extension from the higher existing extension onto the roof of the original house.
To further minimise its impact both elevations of the extension are set back from the existing gables. Internal alterations were carried out to ensure the new layout complimented the existing accommodation.
The new Living Room enjoys the spectacular view to East Burra and the Clift Hills.
Both the extensions are clad in painted timber to distinguish it from the original house which was built around 1900.
