Initially starting out as an extension and remodel project, it was clear on site that the original structure was too poor and unsuitable to work with. As a result, the decision was to demolish and rebuild from scratch. The scale and massing of the new house needed to reference its previous form but allowed for playful experimentation at the rear where spaces opened out to the garden. At ground floor, rooms sit on differing levels with the living room leading onto a blue study with bold dark blue cement tiles with walls and ceiling painted to match. The interior also includes a pantry constructed with tiled bricks, allowing for food to be kept cold and isolated from the heat of the house.
The interior also includes a model version of a pantry with tiled bricks internally to help with keeping the cold in and the house heating out. This type of food storage allows for the large family kitchen to be kept clear of the usual debris of family living.
