RAIA Residential Alterations & Additions Award TAS 2007

Built in 1911, this home for Amelia Jones was one of 3 houses commissioned for her and her sisters in Davey Street, Hobart by her father Henry Jones. Despite some alterations over time, the original building is largely intact. However like most buildings of its vintage, living spaces are oriented to the street rather than the contemporary preference for the garden. The glass and steel addition is intended to rectify this circumstance allowing itself to be cradled by the existing building with a clear delineation of old and new.
