The Turner Secondary Residence is a petite 90sqm new residence, located at the rear of an existing single dwelling block. The house provides flexibility of use, being either a 2 bedroom house with a study or second living, or becoming a compact 3 bedroom dwelling.
The Secondary Residence complies with the Adaptable Housing Standard to allow for future disabled use. At the same time, an uncompromised design outcome is achieved for regular occupation.
Wall alignment and structure is rational yet the built form provides articulation to the facade, with a simple gable roof over. The house is a mixture of brick and lightweight cladding, to create a modernised version of a simple cottage/shack.
