Believing that bigger is not always better, the extension was designed as just enough to provide a more comfortable living space and new kitchen with island bench. The living area was reorientated towards the north facing feature window and timber blades. These blades were continued inside to create niches for bookshelves and firewood storage. The fireplace was relocated to a new concrete hearth, reminiscent of the in-situ concrete plinth that surrounds the house.
