Text description provided by the architects. The Boardinghouse involved the amalgamation of five ‘boarding rooms’ in a pre-war house into a contemporary home for a large family in inner city New Farm.

The house is nestled in a corner on Teneriffe Hill where it enjoys an unexpected combination of river views, city views, warehouse neighbours and character housing while equally having complete privacy with its own elevated north east courtyard.

The resulting architecture is an overt statement about the possibilities of modern architecture juxtaposed with one hundred years of history. While this approach was a bold move with regards to aesthetics, it has equally retained and reinstated the character portion of the house and protected this for future generations to enjoy.
