Northrop House

The proportions of this contemporary addition to a double fronted weatherboard cottage are intended to have an equal relationship to the old section of the house, neither dominating nor subservient to it. The addition is primarily concerned with the relationship between it and the north facing rear garden. A skillion roof faces north to maximise winter sun penetration into the living space while the roof overhang prevents heat gain in summer. The expanse of window orients the room toward the garden and the landscape pushes toward the interior in the form of a raised veggie patch and a timber portal that frames an espaliered fuji apple tree.
