Creating new family space from an existing federation style cottage allowed a departure from the confined past to a new definition of living with in this small block.

The new addition opens up to a large family area that enables the division between interior and exterior spaces to blend.

The use of subtle changes in vertical space creates connection with sunlight and garden throughout.

The blurred boundary of living, combined with the multiple entrances and screens, allow both physical and visual free movement throughout the house and garden

The new addition skilfully incorporates the potential for growth and changing family living patterns in a once clearly defined house.
