Reddog Architects as Architects

This extension to a Queenslander is the result of a multi-layered response to site and client. The existing Queenslander had been lovingly restored, in part by the previous owner. The existing bullnose verandah and single skin VJ walls had been carefully reinstated and the original kitchen hearth remained intact. The desire to maintain these historic details was offset against the need to improve solar access and connection to the landscape.

The new work engages meaningfully and directly with the environment and captures winter sun and summer breezes. The honest expression of materiality and dramatic shifts in volume characterise its expression. It was decided to maintain the existing house’s connection to the street resulting in a rear extension that weaves across the site, defining and engaging with two new external courtyards.
