A 2004 project of additions and alterations to a 1920s timber cottage sitting high up overlooking nearby landscaped areas. The project includes a simple extruded box form added to the rear of the residence, with subtracting space internally where required. Living spaces face the northern external courtyard, while a level change was introduced to create interest and allow access to the terraced garden at the rear. The existing house has a reworked ‘grand’ bathroom off the bedroom to the front of the property. A translucent covered pergola provides shelter from northern light during summer, while allowing winter light into the residence.
Few furniture designs withstand the test of time as well as the HÅG Capisco. Established as a seating icon for over 30 years, the chair is as popular and contemporary today, as the day it was launched.
