Cooks Hill, NSW
Residential, Alterations & Additions
Newcastle Architecture Awards – 2023 – Entry Residential Architecture Houses (Alts & Adds)
Given the age, location, and context of the dwelling it was important to provide a design response which respects the heritage of the place whilst not reproducing it; rather, telling the next chapter to the story in the form of a contemporary addition filled with light and breeze to suit the Client’s entertainer lifestyle.
The resulting alterations and additions pick up on the northern rear orientation for the main entertaining areas and utilise the stair/bridge link as a light well to introduce light deep into the existing terrace. Multi-use spaces, adaptable furniture, and natural lighting/ventilation are the keys to the success of this project for the Client and have resulted in a home that suits their needs whether it is just the two of them and their dogs or entertaining a large group of friends and family.
