A room in the garden

Derwent Park | Residential Addition

This low-budget garden studio provides much needed extra space for a growing family. To preserve the pure form of the existing 1940s weatherboard home, the studio sits in the garden, detached from the main house yet connected via a broad deck that extends like a jetty out into the garden. The arrangement of the new building articulates the backyard into various garden rooms. A large en-suite opens onto the side deck, while the main multi-function space catches the northern sun, essential as a play room, guest space and future parent’s retreat.
