nice two storey addition to a hundred year old cottage

I enjoyed reading about this cottage extension in today’s Courier Mail. Designed by owner/architect Stephen de Jersey, it is a two storey addition to a 100 year cottage. It has been cleverly designed to suit the Townsville heat without constant use of air conditioning.

Some of the key features are:

  • Lightweight tin and timber construction (corrugated mini-orb outside, plywood inside)
  • Huge overhang of roof to shade interior
  • Sliding doors for cross ventilation
  • Cool polished concrete floors
  • Toy storage under the stairs to maximise use of the living area
