The Deck House is the Alteration and Addition of an early 1900’s Timber Weatherboard Cottage in Suburban Sydney.
The orginal house was full of character yet dilapidated to the rear and did not take advantage of the North facing rear garden.
The design removed a rear wing housing a Dining room, Kitchen and
Bathroom and replaced it with an L-Shaped addition with a Dining Room, Kitchen, Bathroom, Laundry and Living Room around a new timber deck to capture the Northern light and provide privacy and screening from the neighbouring commercial buildings at the rear.
The concept was underpinned by a philosophy of modestly, innovation and re-use of materials.
