An addition to a iconic (and very lovely) house designed by Auckland architect Nick Stanish on a minuscule section in Freemans Bay proved to be a major challenge in the development of a self-contained unit. The site was smaller than most small vegetable gardens and hemmed in by height restrictions along every boundary. The design touches the allowable building envelope on every surface but still maintains the character of the existing cedar weatherboard house. The form and materials of the addition are crafted to fit in with the original - rather than making a contrasting statement - this out of respect for what was a fine building.

 The cottage contains a living/dining/office space with a master bedroom above, all served by a large bathroom and sauna. The whole opens onto a landscaped patio/deck area giving exceptional indoor/outdoor living. All of this is incorporated in a 480 sq. ft. footprint and was built for $57,000.
