Trentham House is the 1980's weatherboard house that was redesigned by Adam Kane Architects to contrast the construction type and aesthetic of the house, whilst also maximising natural light to the proposed living and alfresco areas.

Project's description: The pavilion style addition was designed as a series of solid and glazed vertical planes sandwiched between horizontal floor and roof planes, with spaces oriented towards the garden, and away from neighbours.

We believe it was important for the materiality of the extension’s façade to create a sense of permanence and solidity, and that the use of a neutral colour palette would enhance the visual impact of the surrounding European garden, and not compete with the existing pale blue finish of the weatherboard home.

Long and slender bricks were used as it is believed these slender proportions contribute to the horizontality of the extension’s modern architecture, whilst also referencing the adjoining weatherboards of the existing period home.
