Chewton Holiday House
Built by the grandfather of my wife, this weekend-house is typical for the Australian 1960’s. Weather-board finish, double-hung windows and a veranda at the front and back. While the house has become the embodiment of outdated ways of living, it also became a valuable monument of family memories. Rather then demolishing the existing house, we chose to pursue the design of addition that respects the existing plan, reinvents the existing architectural language and ultimately helps the house survive another family generation.
