This project involved the refurbishment and extension to a 1990’s cottage that had been substantially damaged during the January 2011 Brisbane River floods. The existing house enjoyed north east aspect river frontage but had very a poor connection to the river as well as massively underutilized living areas. The primary scope for the project involved the reconfiguration of the existing deck area into the “River Room”, conceived of an indoor/ outdoor space that could be calibrated by the clients to use year round. The space involves a chamfered trapezoid plan with a highly articulated glazed north-east facade. The glazed wall forms a solid barrier to the cold winter breezes while allowing complete openness and transparency during the warm summer months.

The existing circa. 1940’s cottage situated on an exposed site in Co. Tipperary was in dilapidated condition and was used primarily only at weekends by the client. The intention was to refurbish and extend this cottage to become a functional living environment so the client could greatly increase the quantity and quality of time spent here. The proposal involved the demolition of the existing rear extension and the addition of three new elements, a living block, glazed link and shed.
New modern vernacular arrangements of new and existing buildings.

The 1,100 sf cottage consists of two modules raised and separated for light, space and privacy. The space between the modules is enclosed with glass. The cottage plan has an ‘X’ form. The dining table is situated at the structure’s crossing, creating a place for rejoining and discussion.

The Cabin is designed for adaption to multiple settings not taking any particular site into consideration, being a product for mass-production distribution.
The general idea is to establish a Cabin-concept that favours a nice landscape setting with the need of appreciating a wonderful view. Two volumes containing bedrooms and service-area are composed in order to obtain the living and dining room space as glazed pavilion in-between giving contact to the nature in all directions.

Boxes form the basis of this intriguing modern holiday house…. bold forms and stark lines create an overall effect, which is solid without being monumental. Glass curtain walls create opportunities to bring the outdoors in and to incorporate internal building elements into the geometry of the structure.

Set on the Cliff-side of a much-cherished lake, this cottage seeks to enhance the extraordinary surrounding scenery through the thoughtful integration of building elements with the natural assets of the site and terrain. This dwelling emerges form the rock formation of the cliff using the same local granite to form its base. A central core acts as an anchor that circulates movement, light and air into the living spaces that pinwheel and cantilever off into the landscape. In spite of its modest scale, the residence easily accommodates the family of four by providing amenity for dinning, cooking, living, reading and sleeping which are each carefully tuned to the unique view, light and breezes of the cliff. To balance the heavy mass derived from the fireplaces; cantilevered volumes, flying roofs and floor to ceiling glass are used to achieve a lightness of form as it works to bring the lake into the living spaces.
