Housing a young family of six, the house has two zones: one for adults and one for children. The zones are located at opposite sides of the house and are joined by a central living space. A new family room features exposed Tasmanian Oak timber panels on the wall and pitched ceiling, alongside reclaimed brick walls and handmade Anchor Ceramic tiles.

A feature can be found in the large sliding doors that connect the spacious living room to an outdoor raised deck, which serves also as a social space. The tactile detailing seen in the interior carried over to the facade, with raw cedar shingles and shiplap cladding, as well as a saw-tooth roofline.

The extension is designed to settle into its surroundings with the timber materials selected expected to silver and gain a patina over time.
