An extension to a semi-detached Edwardian home. This addition is formed out of a response to the existing building and the broader context of the heritage screetscape.


The experience is one of continuity across 2 distinct parts as it is born out of the materials and forms of the existing building however ultimately it ends in contemporary expression.


Internally a double height space over the kitchen places a master bedroom in a loft space, allowing light to filter into the center of the house.


The old building transitions to a new lofty and light space, where one encounters materials drawn in from the old front portico. Bagged brickwork, painted timber cladding, raw concrete and gloss painted white detail on the kitchen trims and the stair give the space a tactile quality and create a material continuity across two very distinct parts. 


Tactile materials combined with ever-changing qualities of light have created a series of interconnected spaces that are a pleasure to spend time in.
