Dimitty Andersen Architects’ Rose Park House – a contemporary extension to a double-fronted bluestone cottage – is another entrant in this year’s South Australian Architecture Awards.
Describing the house, the firm says: “New work included eating and living areas, an upper level for parents’ facilities, a pool, multi-car garaging, a rooftop garden and studio.
“The contemporary style of the new work sits in counterpoint to the traditional home. The existing street frontage of the house has been maintained and clearly defined both in spatial planning and architectural treatment.
“The streamline new building replicates the typology of a solid masonry base with rhythmic upper-level cladding. The form of the upper level is specifically curved to enable views of the Adelaide Hills and allows evening breezes to flow through the home.
“The street frontage is to the north of the site, so we designed the ground floor in an ‘L’ shape. This created a northern courtyard which gives the living areas light and warmth.”
