January to March 2009
Articulation of the building edge resulted in a series of spaces possessing both function and delight. The deep sills to the living room window bays serve as long seats; the multiple windows can be opened to optimise sea breeze cross flow.
In bed 1, the deep reveals are intended to serve as bay seat and as shelving, the ceiling possesses a circular cutout to relieve the low space.
The breezeway, linking old and new, begins to take shape. Galvanised iron and timber shiplap were selected to respect the heritage precinct and to unite the building; an issue held dear by the clients..
Although two storey in height, the scale and mass of the additions remain consistent with neighbouring development.
