PETRIE TERRACE HOUSE
A small dilapidated 1870s worker’s cottage in the Brisbane suburb of Petrie Terrace is currently being transformed. The cottage is being raised to fit a garage underneath, and a 2 storey extension is being built to the rear. The existing house will be refurbished and altered to fit in a new bathroom and laundry in the old kitchen space. The extension will provide a contemporary kitchen, living area and deck on the lower level and bedrooms and bathroom on the upper level. Maximising northern light, while ensuring privacy from close neighbours, is a priority for the clients. This is to be achieved by the use of screen walls, large scale blades and high level windows.
