Paperbark Projects

A multi-stage alteration and first-floor addition project, ABA worked closely with the Certifier and builder to achieve a Complying Development Certificate, in a much faster timeframe than a council Development Application. An overall masterplan for the dwelling was devised, with the stages divided between first floor addition, ground floor internal reconfiguration and external works. The client’s desire for a visually contrasting, ‘new and old’ design, was the basis for the black box addition, whilst the inside was harmoniously designed to link all of the spaces to create a compact, yet space-efficient, family home. The quest for natural light and reusing rather than replacing, led us to the idea of exposing the existing roof trusses and adding skylights to the rear living area for a lovely spatial feature.
