We were conscious of allowing the house to age gracefully by acknowledging its weathered nature as a thing of beauty and respect.

Our response was inspired and directed by the client’s determined assertion that she was merely the current caretaker of this ‘old lady’; of this building that had preceded and would surely succeed her into the future.

Beauty, ageing, utility and continuity were explored through the analogy of the existing house as an ‘old lady’ with a bustle dress.
