This project is an extension and restoration of a historic home in central Ballarat. The contemporary addition extends from the south side of the existing house. A wall of glass sliding doors connects the main living area to the backyard. The roof of the extension is pitched up to the north – with clerestory windows filling the new living spaces with natural light. The different structures are connected via a glazed linkway that clearly differentiates the architectural eras and allows the old and new designs to sit comfortably side by side.
“Glimpses of the new timber-clad box appear from within the old house. In finely-crafted timber, it looks more like joinery that has escaped and been enlarged to become habitable architecture”. – Toby Horrocks – Houses Magazine
