The Cottage

Brief

This renovation of an existing low-set brick and tile house in Burleigh is all about reconnecting with it’s suburban context. The existing roofline is dynamic but needed reconfiguring to add much-needed natural light deep into living spaces. It’s a bold splash of colour but a respectful nod to the character of the original house.

Being a corner block, layers of screening and landscape carefully regulate connection and privacy with both streets. Space on the edge of the block is given back to the street with a spot for neighbours to catch up while watching kids play.
