This project is a modest alteration and addition to a holiday house, an existing 1960’s fibro & weatherboard cottage in Prevelly, on the south west coast of W.A.
The concept for the renovation was to embrace and celebrate the charm and informality of the original house and the era it was built. Our aspiration was to express the essence of the ‘beach holiday’ through the use of materials, particularly the raw timber floor boards, and other salvaged materials, fixtures and furniture, and to, literally and metaphorically, ‘feel the sand between our toes’.
