This project designed by hobbs jamieson architecture involved the refurbishment and extension a free standing single storey brick bungalow. A little out of our usual aesthetic the project became an interesting challenge and learning experience for our office as we worked through the myriad of traditional detail requests.

The couple we worked with brought back many of the sensibilities of traditional french provincial buildings during their recent residence in Europe and requested some of those ideas be interpreted in their renovation.
The original elements of the cottage were retained, with a double height extension added to the rear to address the southerly frontage, with other built form above resulting in a much larger family home extended in a way that respected the existing, but created contemporary light filled spaces.
