The brief for the house at Hunters Hill required the renovation of and new extensions to an existing heritage listed sandstone cottage. The substantial additions created a contemporary, light filled and generous family home.

The new building includes a lightweight framed living zone which has a tapered zinc clad roof which takes its line and form from the existing heritage building fabric. This dynamic form rests on a solid masonry base that houses the sleeping areas. The form of this solid base draws its cue from the existing heavy sandstone structure and acts as an interface between the cottage and the garden at the lower part of the site.

The resulting balance of new and heritage elements creates a dwelling of exception amenity with a strong relationship to its natural and built surroundings.
