Project summary

Dorrington House is a multigenerational family home is transformed from a 70-year-old, postwar, Queenslander. A survivor of a lift, extension, and a smattering of faux character, this alterations and additions project has transformed its functionality to house three generations.

The house engages outwardly in a way that is both respectful of the character of its place and is an individual and honest expression of its own time. It strives to tell the story of how it was created.

It marks a new chapter in this house’s journey, traditional of Queenslanders, each modified by successive owners, leaving their unique mark. We respect what came before us here, and we plan for this chapter to endure, for quite some time yet.
