Shakespeare House QLD
The existing corner dwelling addressed Wordsworth St but was isolated both physically and visually from the site. Utilizing a similar approach explored in other studio renovation projects, the existing house was shifted on the site but otherwise underwent minor alterations and a new pavilion was added. The dual street access provided the opportunity to create a new frontage to Shakespeare St with the contemporary extension becoming the ‘front’ of the house. The extension creates new living and bedroom spaces that maximize solar orientation and views to the Port of Brisbane. The double height outdoor room and bridged study zone, create a transition between old and new and enable a visible threshold to allow the existing architecture to remain intact. Fenestration was located to capture views.
