Extension|Jessica Hardwick|October 2020 - June 2021
WINNER 2021 – HIA Brisbane Renovation/Addition Project $300,001 – $600,000
On a quiet leafy street in Red Hill, this character cottage has undergone a major renovation and the addition of a crisp, minimalist extension. As a home for a professional couple, the brief called for more space, and a modern reinterpretation of classic features. The resulting design rests heavily upon precision detailing, considered selections, and clever and carefully constructed finishes.
The design solution focused on generous spaces that made the most of the tight 473m2 block. The new extension, designed by Jessica Hardwick is comprised of a kitchen, dining, and living area that flows naturally into each other and out into the patio. Upstairs retains the character of the original cottage with some new additions tying this all in together seamlessly. The finish of this home is impeccable, with a minimal palette of contrasting tones and textures. Victoria Ash Timbers, customised joinery, black detailing, and mosaic tiles—all expertly installed to tight tolerances—add interest and intrigue, and make this a truly bespoke outcome.
