The success of our projects can often hinge on the meeting of the new and old. Our clients brief to extend their home of character with a minimal and contemporary architectural aesthetic has demanded a rigorous and considered approach to the design of the proposed extensions and remodelling. Previous additions to the original dwelling will be removed, to ensure the preservation of the original details and features, and to augment the contrasting relationship between the new extensions and existing context.
The proposals are designed to contrast with the existing dwelling and not mimic the earlier architectural style, to make a clear representation between the old and the new. The design is purposefully contemporary, minimal in form, and utilises high quality materials that will add to the quality of the host property, but not detract from the character of the existing house.
The design layout, form and materials will be informed and inspired by our Clients' affection for Japan, and the ideals that underpin its culture and mindful approach to everyday life
