Philip Gresley and Justine Monk (B. Arch) designed this tight budget project as their family home. A living, dining and kitchen space, a second bathroom, and laundry were conceived as a 'box' that suspends itself from the rear of the existing cottage, sitting above the sloping grade of the block to invite maximum light and space into the home.

Materials were selected for their robustness, warmth and their ability to balance the expression of solid and void within the ‘box’.

Good passive solar design was critical to the comfort of the home.
