"Small but with delight, this project looks at how a modest alteration and addition can make a positive contribution to the way a family live."

A modern take on the Australian corrugated shed vernacular this interior alteration to an existing 3 bedroom 1919 house provides open plan living, dining and kitchen with study mezzanine above while sheilding the rear of the house from the prying eyes of the residents of the large block of apartments behind.

That's what the print says and that may be true ... or not :) What I am noticing though is the demise of the overstuffed, the over thought, the over tweaked, the overdone.
