This Ascot workers cottage renovation project involves the transformation of a post-war cottage into a sophisticated home with an art deco edge.
The client required us to create a new pavilion-style extension generally with the same character as the current home. This extension contains an open plan kitchen, dining and living space which flows out to a large covered outdoor terrace, landscaped courtyard with plunge pool. The ground floor has a laundry, powder room and stair with a new main bedroom on the first floor. The main bedroom includes an ensuite, robe, retreat and balcony.
The new wing is linked to the current home with a very open substantially glass link. The new main entry space has an art deco contemporary styling as a transition zone from old to new.
A new double garage with a substantially enclosed carport is located at road level. Attached to this space are a cellar and storage area.
We converted the original home’s kitchen space to a third bedroom and re-organised the bathroom. The original entry and living-dining area was transformed into a home office, library and lounge space that doubles as a media room. The separate entry remains to provide for office access.
The home was rendered to address the external streetscape fence treatment with landscaped spaces to produce an entirely integrated concept.
James Sutherland who was a pastoralist bought a large parcel of land that included Ascot and surrounding areas in 1855. Today Ascot is a residential area with many beautiful old Queenslanders. With one of the highest median prices in Brisbane, you are looking at over $1 million to buy a home here, making it an affluent place to live. Ascot is about 8km from the Brisbane city centre.
