Brief

Addition to an existing miner’s cottage on an urban site creates a link between existing bedrooms, and the extensive fruit and vegetable gardens on the steeply sloping site. Robust, low-energy materials such as fibre-cement sheet and plantation timber are used for a natural palette and to minimise the overall environmental footprint. 2002
