Warren Residence

The designer has adhered to accepted heritage conservation principles when adding to this unusual ripple-iron clad early 20th century farmhouse at Inverloch, which is of individual heritage significance in the local planning scheme.

The addition is sympathetic in form to the original house, and old and new fabric are clearly discernible through careful detailing.

The addition is a contemporary interpretation of the form of the house, with decorative detailing kept to a minimum. This modern but respectful approach provides new light-filled living and bedroom areas, while retaining quaint original features such as internal timber linings. The alterations and additions have ensured the survival of a building that is of local historic and aesthetic significance, and have set a precedent for other similar heritage conservation projects.
