A dilapidated, federation cottage with a 1990s lean-to was extensively demolished and extended into a two-level, contemporary house, which follows passive-house design principles. The property grew from 85m² to 185 sqm.

The existing gable-end roof line was extended through to the rear, to reference the buildings original architectural character. We utilised the generous roof height and proportions to add in a mezzanine level and double-height space, at the rear of the property.

The house has a mix of private, social and work spaces. The front portion of the house is retained as bedroom and “adult” living space. A central spine corridor connects the old part of the house to the contemporary extension. Additional bedrooms, bathroom, entrance/laundry lead onto a double height, open-plan kitchen, dining and “social” living room at the rear. A feature staircase connects to a large mezzanine study and en-suite.
