The extension to this 4 room cottage in Wilston aims to maximize the use of the double-block, while using the existing structure to help generate a new spatial relationship between the master’s suite and the other bedrooms. The design presents a clean, contemporary building with bold formal gestures that partially sit within the footprint of the existing residence. The new addition aims to take advantage of natural light by creating a number of unique apertures towards chosen aspects of the park and surrounds.
The interior consists of custom designed joinery and built in furniture. The aim of this is to create a compact spatial layout that maximises functionality throughout day to day activities.
The palette also works to draw the exterior view into the interior.
