Rippleside House by Lachlan Shepherd Architects

Rippleside house designed by Lachlan Shepherd Architects involved the careful renovation of the existing heritage-listed cottage and the provision of a new addition, comprising multiple living zones and garage. Photography by Ben Hosking.


The aesthetic approach was to “shadow” the existing built form with a new steel structure, clad in Colorbond Monument “nailstrip” profile sheeting.

Essentially, the new dark built form acts as a counterpoint to the white existing (heritage) structure and provides subtle visual cues to the old dwelling.
