Occupying a quiet street in a conservative neighbourhood, sits Tennis Ave residence, with new additions that nestle into the suburban context. Conceived as two buildings and brought together as one via the unifying entry and linking external facades. The entry punctuates the space, allowing natural light to filter through the timber battened translucent roof to highlight the textured materials of the two parts. Hovering over the edge of the existing pool and brushing the lowest radial branches of the hoop pine, the two-storey gabled box clips directly to the back of the old cottage. Opposing the typically square, cellular plan of the old, the new extension is long and lean, approximately 4.5 metres wide and twelve metres long. The space is designed as the new family hub, accommodating social spaces downstairs and an upstairs bedroom and study.
