The clients, builders and interiors, sought to refurbish the existing cottage and add an ultra-modern extension. Their brief: ‘to design a modernist-leaning home that would accommodate an active family with children approaching their teens’.

Seeking to keep the communal areas on one level, the new home forms a L-shape with the cottage at the knuckle. The gardens were raised to create a level lawn, pool area and outdoor living area which is connected to the kitchen and main dining/living zone.

The clients wanted open plan, large expanses of glass and minimal ornamentation, with off-form concrete. The concrete has been contrasted with the weatherboards of the cottage and addition of smoked oak, bluestone, porcelain and white brick.
