Architect: Taylor & Hinds Architects

Through a program of careful restoration and repair, the exterior was reconditioned and a series of judicious erasures of the accumulated layers of building-fabric was made in order to uncover the original Georgian aspirations of the interior. The tendencies of the Van Diemonian Georgian are peculiar; there is an underlying sense of subtlety and delicacy, which is also economic and purposeful. The generations of families who previously occupied this house over two centuries were blacksmiths, carpenters and pastoralists. Their memory is recast in the new work through a series of finely crafted insertions, which provide contemporary amenity and create a delicate scaffold to the rooms.
