Northcote Park House
A small, cost effective addition to a weatherboard cottage in Northcote. Given the constrained site, a key concept was to make the adjacent park feel as if it were an extension of the property, opening up the house whilst maintaining privacy and security for the occupants.
Another key move was to separate the old house from the new with a north facing courtyard.
Passive design principles have been implemented and the existing house is to be thermally upgraded. Deep overhanging eaves reduce the solar heat gain in summer.
Type: Residential Renovation + Addition
