Location: Parkside, SA
Completion date: 2019
Architect: Archaea Architects - Formally Sally Wilson Architects.
Affectionally known as ’Side Kick' this little light-filled extension in Parkside received a commendation at the 2020 SA AIA chapter awards.
Through a series of key design moves: subtract, pinch, mould, outline and celebrate, Archaea have successfully reconfigured a period villa. Creative responses to historic context and passive design generate a playful pitched roof and ceiling line. The strategic and sympathetic sidestep of the rear addition ensures the contemporary insertion sits comfortably to the rear of the existing villa and addresses the northern aspect.
