The central idea behind this project was to breathe new life into a run-down and uninhabited 100-year-old sandstone cottage and to build an elegant, energy-efficient and comfortable addition that makes the most of the garden, aspect and physical attributes of the site. This project has successfully saved a piece of architectural heritage and has given rise to a well detailed, elegant and climatically responsive piece of contemporary architecture. The new addition does not dominate or overwhelm the original house and is not stifled or constrained by it either.

In the new addition, cross ventilation, natural light and rainwater harvesting have been fully utilised to create an energy-efficient and comfortable living environment that opens out to the garden and pool. The cottage, though renovated to modern standards, has remained largely untouched in terms of layout and finish and retains the character and details of the original sandstone home.

About the
Professional

Utz Sanby Architects is an award-winning practice focused on delivering high-quality residential projects. Established in 1994 we have a reputation for delivering great design, service and buildings. We are passionate about design that enhances the lives of our clients, resulting in a positive change to how they live.

We provide a full architectural service for the duration of a project, from initial concept to completion, covering the following progressive stages:

  • Initial sketch designs
  • Submitting a Development Application (DA) to the Council
  • Design development
  • Preparing contract documentation
  • Tendering and negotiation
  • Contract administration

Because the design and construction process can be daunting, we endeavour to communicate, educate and assist clients throughout the process, so that the experience of the design and build is both rewarding and satisfying.

Additional services that we provide include:

  • Pre-purchase site visits – for advice regarding the development potential of a site, in order to help make an informed decision prior to purchasing.
  • Feasibility studies – including analysis of brief and budget; assessment of council constraints; preliminary opinion of probable cost, which may include initial conceptual design.
  • Interiors and furniture selection – our full architectural service includes a selection of internal finishes, colours, tiles, lighting, sanitary and tapware and door hardware. We can also advise on the selection of furniture, fabrics, blinds and lighting.
At ArchiPro we recognise and acknowledge the existing, original and ancient connection Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have to the lands and waterways across the Australian continent. We pay our respects to the elders past and present. We commit to working together to build a prosperous and inclusive Australia.
