Situated in the rural township of Romsey, Victoria, this project is essentially an addition of a kitchen and master bedroom to an existing dwelling. The placement of the addition, as two offset pavilions has created a sheltered courtyard space which can be accessed from the main living spaces of the house, and a separate kitchen garden with a northerly aspect. The design proposal will require very little internal modification to the existing dwelling, however it will transform the internal/external spatial relationships and provide much needed space for a growing family. The design also makes best use of winter sun capture for winter warmth.
Concept Design only was commissioned by the owners, as they intend to develop the project as owner-builders.
