Additions and renovations to an existing railway cottage in New Plymouth. The existing roof line was extended to create a large double hieght area and an office mezzanine space.

While the street entrance side of the house was left largely untouched the new timber rainscreen detailing (using locally grown redwood) was introduced to create a lightbox over the entrance.
