Small yet significant, this addition reflects the complementary abilities of its architect owners. In a reversing of the traditional process, the extension was first constructed as a garden, with a new addition then deftly grafted in, around and over the landscape. A small, staid state-house duplex has been enlivened and animated. Discreet pockets of occupation have been opened out to the garden, neighbourhood, sky and school fields beyond.
