The brief for this project required the addition of a bedroom and study wing to an existing small house in the Surf Coast countryside.

The architectural intervention centred on the creation of a new pavilion around a central courtyard. This intervention redefined the entry to the house and created a sheltered sun trap, while allowing solar access to the new pavilion. The roof form for the existing house is echoed in a series of manipulations of Colorbond, plywood and glazing. The house forms a gallery for the clients’ collection of artwork and sculpture from the Asian region. The house was designed on a tight budget, with the courtyard comprising a free space created by the addition of the new pavilion.
