This elegant and restrained addition to the rear of an Art Deco house in Brisbane explores the potential of the suburban backyard as a contemporary living space. The architects have taken their formal cues from the modest, carefully detailed existing house to create two generous and expansive rooms – one inside and one outside. These open up directly from the more intimate spaces of the Art Deco house.

The new work has been composed with a great deal of care. It is organized on the site to generate a modulated suite of living spaces in both the house and the garden, which take full advantage of the opportunities for relaxed living that Brisbane’s climate offers.
