our brief was for a new two storey rear addition to a freestandingdwelling thatwas part of agroup of four identical heritage listed federation cottages.
We began by studying the rooflines of the four houses.Drawing both the front elevation and the oblique view in perspective which captured the true experience of the house in the street.
Our design concept was to creat the maximum dwelling space within a two storey footprint limited to the out line of the front roof profile. Making the addition invisible from the street.
Within this tight framewoork we worked with the idea of compactness to create a complex section of habitable rooms, storage, stairs and skylights that created agenerous living space opening to the northern rear garden.
