Canopy House

Bower Architecture and Interiors as Architects

Canopy House is a harmonious single storey extension to a Victorian double fronted weatherboard cottage. It demonstrates the potential for new additionsto respectfully and confidently sit within their context. Connections to landscape, daylight and peaceful everyday moments enhance this family home. 

 

Restoration of the Victorian double fronted cottage to create new bedroom areas is combined with a new north facing living space at the rear. An intimate transition zone between these two areas allows each end of the house to respectfully sit alongside each other.The rear 4m high living spaces include expansive northern glazed areas and louvres  for natural ventilation and morning light, which connect to a private garden protected by a dramatic folded external canopy.

 

”Considered proportion and harmony with existingelements form an integral part of ourpractice.” - Jade Vidal, project Architect
