The project was approached as an act of heritage conservation and the results of our design hand are barely legible to strangers. Being a modular, structurally-determined post and beam wooden structure, and therefore inherently rigid and full of conviction, the original house instructed our every move.

The interventions include a new fireplace, door systems, kitchen, custom lounge and alcove, wall unit, curved skylight veil, deck screen and new bathrooms.
