This project involved a complete rebuild and extension of an existing farm worker's cottage in Coldstream, Mid Canterbury. The owners chose to renovate and rebuild the cottage to live in, leaving the main farmhouse to step aside from the full day to day running of the farm. The home was set amongst established grounds and with a north facing aspect the house made the most of full sun and views.
The existing home was completely stripped back and the interior layout changed to create a larger open plan kitchen and larger lounge area. The floorplan was extended approximately 60m2 and only 2 bedrooms remained their original size.
