A project done in conjunction with another designer – Annelise Spurgeon. See Staff Profiles.
Rundown cottage that had to remain, now one quarter of an elegant house. Using heritage principals, we added a new ‘pavilion’ to one side on the square small lot, while lifting the cottage and placing garage and laundry under it. The cottage underwent a makeover and became a private 3 bed wing, with generous bathrooms. A stair and entry link joins the cottage to the pavilion. The upper pavilion is an open plan living area opening onto a front verandah and large rear deck, and has a clerestory portion over the dining to bring in northern light. Lower pavilion has 2 bedrooms, bathroom, rumpus and more decks. The overall result is almost like two houses, which respects the frequency of houses in Paddington, while not dominating the short street.
