Our thanks, as always to Derek Swalwell Photography for a great shoot recently in Geelong. Derek has again managed to capture the essence and flavour of our recently completed build in Preston Street.
The double fronted Victorian weatherboard has been lovingly restored to its former glory, with the retention of the original four front rooms, and the removal of earlier faux Victorian style additions to the rear.
The original cottage is thus now presented in its original form and partnered with a contrasting modern pavilion behind it.
So as to enable each to share equal moment, we have subtly connected them via a delicate glazed bridge link which traverses the shallows of a newly introduced swimming pool.
The cottage has been repurposed to provide the quieter spaces of the home, a bedroom, study and retreat space being included. The new pavilion style accommodation by contrast, provides for the more robust requirements of a family living environment, with kitchen, dining and laundry spaces combining with the master bedroom suite, remotely positioned to the rear.
The structure rests between garden courts and overlooks the new pool and covered outdoor entertaining space.
The interiors have been furnished with thanks to Jardan, Ross Gardam, Domo, Pittella & Vzug. The selections offer a seamless transition and link between the two halves of the building.
