Merthyr Road Residence
The existing heritage cottage is a good example of the vernacular housing style of the period in which it was built and has been retained and enhanced through renovations.
The iconic nature of Merthyr Road has had its streetscape maintained and improved. The new extension is of modern architectural design, taking into account the prevailing breezes for natural ventilation and open plan living that will bring a quality of living to the owners expects of contemporary housing of this quality.
The design highlights the heritage listed home by contrasting with it and in doing so it will appear from the street to be a separate building, leaving the heritage cottage to appear untouched and hence maintaining the integrity of the original cottage.
