Mayne St Residence // Gulgong NSW

Mayne Street Residence is a contemporary extension to an existing heritage listed dwelling in order to accommodate a growing young family within the sensitive Heritage context of Gulgong NSW.  The extension responds sensitively to the prevailing scale and materiality of the existing heritage buildings, while allowing each of the buildings to “breathe” and retain their historical integrity. Built form and mass is reduced through the careful composition and interplay of the contextual brick work and sheet metal cladding while maximizing the internal volume of the space that sits within the heritage roof height. A new external dining space helps mediate between the old and the new, while the existing heritage fabric is largely kept untouched and visible from the new spaces. Photography: Amber Hooper from Amber Creative
