Heritage Listed Masonry Cottage Renovation

BALGOWLAH, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA

The focus for this project was the architectural rebirth of the existing heritage listed masonry cottage. In achieving this, the project also needed to balance the inclusion of a large rear pavilion addition within the bounds of the conservation area guidelines.

The approach involved a complete renovation of the existing cottage including the reinstatement of the original front veranda (previously enclosed), along with a complete refit of the cottage incorporating federation style detailing.

The rear addition in contrast to this is stark in its detail and contemporary in its material use. Though vast in its proportion and volume, the addition is almost unseen from the street and rests well within the landscape of similar additions either side.

Breezway Louvre Windows have been incorporated into the design for natural light and cross-ventilation and have flyscreens installed to prevent bugs entering the home.
