Cole Street

Period dwellings that are worthy of restoration often require an extreme transformation so that they can adapt to the expectations of modern day living: that transformation is almost text book at Cole Street.

A freestanding extension delivers open plan living with a direct relationship to the outdoor living space. Light shafts are used to provide much needed light to the existing dwelling, creating dramatic views to the sky from an otherwise windowless interior.

A restrained pallet of finishes combined with the warmth of timber delivers a simple and easy flowing family dwelling. The exterior finishes are simple: raw concrete is softened with timber, whilst the existing dwelling is reinterpreted with a contemporary pallet which accents the existing detail rich fa├žade.
