Woodworkers Cottage by Fabric Architecture draws on classic Australian cottages

The client, owner of Loughlin Furniture, approached Fabric Architecture to transform a dark and incoherent house into a light-filled coastal home with incorporated client’s joinery.

“Taking cues from the classic Australian cottages that once lined this coastal peninsular, our Woodworkers Cottage makes reference to the humble qualities of the cottage whilst highlighting these details through exquisite craftsmanship. We re-worked most of the interior layout and added a small addition to the rear in order to accommodate new bedrooms, a parents bedroom complete with an open walk-in ensuite, and open plan kitchen living zone that connects to the backyard. The design incorporated many of Robs (Loughlin Furniture) joinery pieces including a custom timber kitchen, timber vanities and rattan entertain unit from their Pacific Collection. Together we have created a home that is nuanced and playful; a canvas for the future, and a testament to the vision of our clients,” explained Brent and Damien of Fabric Architecture
