Project Description


New England Cottage as designed and constructed by Claridge Construction, with a view to maximizing the views and lifestyle outcome on a smaller lot. Intellegent architecture coupled with beautiful features.

Designed and built as part of a property development, the home is an adaptation of a New England Cottage featuring beautiful open plan, raked ceilings with exposed rafters and a 35 degree roof pitch.

The design evolved to suit a compact block, enabling generally non-compliant double storey floorplan on a hammerhead block by building the upper storey within the roof space. This not only reduced the overall height, it was considered a softening of the typical box on box bulk and appearance of double storey.

Kalamata Cottage operated very successfully as an AirBnB for many years, before finding a permanent owner with clients loving the coastal location and uniqueness and ‘old church’ feel. The home was beautifully finished with lime washed ceilings, Jarrah joinery and staircase, a gas log fire and quality fit-out.

Successful execution of this project required technical solutions to resolve internal compartmentalisation and insulation issues. Further details on how to achieve the New England style and also achieve an 8 star energy rating can be obtained by contacting us for the full Case Study notes.
