From the street you know that this house isn’t going to be quite what you expect. There’s an enigmatic dialogue between facade and neighbours - both respectful but also a little cheeky. It’s not a big house but from picket fence to back garage is a passage of surprises and delight that prompts questions like: new or original? Inside or outside? Along this passage are unexpected courtyards, dynamic sunlight, and a sequence of living spaces that are both connected and unique.
The materials and form of this house tell a story of the original cottage and the extension that was originally proposed for the cottage - the story of Original Cottage and New Extension and the Original Extension and New Cottage
This house belongs to our clients and to this site in a profound way and that is what architecture is all about - it is one of a kind.
