Bowral, 2019 | Gundungurra Country
Located in the Bowral heritage precinct this project started out as an extension to an existing cottage. The construction process revealed that there was extensive structural damage forcing a near complete rebuild.
Living areas are now housed within the original footprint, but the cottage opens up to capture northern light through a slot in the roof section with reflections playing across the canvas lined ceiling space, while other openings are veiled by hardwood screens.
A brick garden room connected to the cottage by a utility verandah offers framed courtyard views and a space to retreat to for the creative endeavours of the occupants.
Life plays out between this private courtyard space and the front verandah greeting neighbours passing by.
