This project aimed to restore the original Victorian cottage while creating a contemporary and exciting piece of architecture to the rear of the property. Paying respect to the original form was of utmost importance, as was designing and building a new space that was grounded in the twenty-first century. Marrying the two in a sympathetic and respectful manner created both the challenge and excitement of this project.
The brief included a three/four bedroom, two bathroom house with a study. The living area consists of an open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge room delineated by the use of plywood bulkheads.
The successful collaboration between the client, architect and builder has resulted in a project that is a source of pleasure for the client and pride for both the builder and architect. The passionate vision and drive throughout the project has resulted in a building that marries artistic design with function, satisfying the clients brief and the architects creative dreams.
