At the heart of the project was the idea of celebrating the character and charm of the dated weatherboard cottage by renovating it and adding a contemporary extension which would accommodate a growing family. 

Originally a dark and pokey 1 bedroom cottage with a sleep out, the home had very limited connection to the outdoors. The brief was to create a light, bright, and comfortable open plan home which was family friendly and great for entertaining whilst making the most of the site. A big emphasis was placed on creating a very functional floor plan which would accommodate various zones suitable for family living. The new entry redirects movement down the side of the home, creating a link between ‘old’ and ‘new’ which has allowed for the separation of private vs public spaces. A private ‘kids’ wing was housed in the existing front cottage, whilst the master wing and open plan entertaining areas forms the new extension.
