Rawson St

Before - Original turn of the century cottage consumed by an ugly fence

Before - Original north facing lean-to addition

Before - Original cottage with a standard 1950’s addition to the rear

Front cottage pared back and restored

A glowing punctuated box opens to the north

Modern insertion contrasts with the old beyond

Contemporary materials and form define the new

Modern addition interfacing with the original via a sculptural insertion

A zen cubby for the kids reflecting the architecture of the addition

The seam between old and new is delineated and purposeful. The memories of the old are retained and the new proudly says “I am of the 21st century”.
