Today on The @artedomus
Series, we speak to John Wardle, founding principal of @johnwardlearchitects
, about Captain Kelly’s Cottage, the painstaking restoration of the 1830s cottage on his Bruny Island farm, recent winner of prestigious awards including the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Awards for International Excellence 2018, and the House Interior of the Year at @dezeen
After living on the farm and working the land since 2002, the design “unfolded over time”, says John.
The project involved uncovering the original structure from beneath subsequent unsympathetic renovations and additions. The new design stays true to the modesty of the original dwelling, reconnecting the new with the narrative of the old.
