With a tight budget and desire to maximize space, the most efficient approach was to avoid a costly teardown and work with the existing A-frame cabin. As the property had good bones, Stark Architect’s, David Arnott, went about designing the extension and upgrading the cabin.
‘We juxtaposed a very modern two-storey, rectangular building next to the old cabin, and covered everything in black, standing-seam metal to tie it all together.’
Once the building design was agreed the Forster’s went to work on the interior design knowing exactly what they wanted. Their style borrows heavily from the sleek, industrial-tinged aesthetic found in more urban locales.
