RENOVATION

Wicket Hill residence

History and Harmony

The Wicket Hill house renovation project yielded many delights, including a playful hidden wing accessible through a moveable bookshelf. 

Zaher Architects created an addition that nestled around the existing aging home. Look closely and you will see the old and new in harmony through the roof forms, which highlight and maintain the history of the site.

Client brief

The owners of this Wicket Hill house wanted to retain as much of the old home as possible while making the space work for a large family and frequent visitors.

The layout needed to be reconfigured to accommodate a large family, maximise thermal comfort, frame the views and create much more outdoor space.

Our solution

As local architects, we think carefully before recommending a client demolishes a functional building, in the interest of preserving resources. Early on, a decision was made to retain what was possible of the existing building and work to ensure the relationship between the old and new could serve the brief of the client.
