Richmond Extension

Coastal & Country Houses

The project consists of alterations and an extension to a heritage listed Colonial Georgian property in the township of Richmond. The project brief sought to maintain the integrity of the existing dwelling, maintain the strong streetscape significance and provide a greater connection between inside and outside spaces.

The angled roof form of the new extension draws in northern light and creates a sheltered courtyard between it and the existing dwelling. The extension clearly contrasts with the original Georgian fabric with its contemporary glass and steel frame structure, complimented with timber cladding to provide warmth.
