This is a rear extension to a single-storey cottage in Brunswick with difficult orientation characteristics - the north sun only reaching the site from over adjoining houses.
The new addition pulls living areas to the rear of the site and uses 'sun-catchers' for light and spaciousness in the interior. On a long, narrow site, a typical response might be to string a series of passage-linked rooms down towards the rear with setbacks all around. By contrast, this house deploys boundary walls to the southern side and the eastern rear, allowing the new spaces to be pulled apart to a degree that belies the constrained site dimensions and creates a spacious, sunny central courtyard garden shared by all the new rooms.
The planning device that enables such dimensional generosity is a stretched linear kitchen bench and home office array that joins dining space to the living room projection.
