Fitting in
A two storey addition is placed next to an existing two storey house. The idea was to make the new work appear as though it were a small building next to the existing. The reason for this juxtaposition of form is that the house is fairly large to begin with and matching the existing colours and form would make it appear as though the house simply got larger. By treating the new work as a ‘new building’ the overall scale of the house and adjacent patio is made more intimate and enclosed. The coloured portions of the photograph represent new work and and the uncoloured portions represent existing.
