An addition to a heritage item in Waverley.
The approach appreciates the simple arrangement of generously proportioned rooms that underpins the experience of the original building.
Our intention was to contribute another of these rooms - described as 'the big room', it was the social room of the house where the main living areas were brought together under a top-lit vaulted ceiling. From the street. the proposed addition was a simple, timber-clad, gabled form alongside the masonry gables of the original building.
The drawings went out to tender in early 2012 before the clients changed their minds. The new design, by another architect, has changed the addition - the 'big room' has been lost and the streetscape address re-defined.
