Wilgah Residence is a bold, colourful, contemporary addition to a heritage home. A once closed off, claustrophobic home, has now been transformed into an open, bold contemporary family home...

From the architect: Designed for a young family who host many events and BBQs. The brief was to create a house that could host a large group of people, whilst still feeling intimate when it was just the family. Connection to the yard and outdoor spaces was also critical.

The addition features a green metal shroud with vertical battens, labelled the 'green screen' by the clients. It functions on many different levels. It acts as a privacy screen for the adjoining neighbours, a solar protection from the Northern Sun, and also is designed to be seating which catches the mid morning sun. The result is a crisp, bold, contemporary facade.

The design borrows colours, textures and patterns from the original fabric, but uses them in a contemporary language which compliments the home. Bold Greens in the interiors as well as textured stucco render are a feature of the home and is a consistent nod to the original form.
