Rozelle House

"The philosophy behind the project was to make a contemporary addition to a traditional terrace house using materials and forms that were inherently sympathetic to the original structure." - Tom Ferguson on his design for the Rozelle house

How does the project contribute to contemporary design practice?

The project contributes to contemporary design practice by exhibiting both an awareness of contemporary interior design trends and a willingness to reject those trends if an alternate material, form or object presented itself as more appropriate for the project

The project uses materials that reference a variety of eras of design while taking advantage of contemporary construction techniques to apply those materials to contemporary forms.

The project eschews the current trend for 'surface indestructibility' and uses materials that have a surface characteristic that will allow them to mature in character over time.
