Captain Kelly's Cottage
by John Wardle Architects

Captain Kelly’s Cottage involves the painstakingly considered restoration of an original weatherboard cottage on a remote bay of Bruny Island, Tasmania.

The project involved the removal of the non-original works to respectfully return the cottage to its original form from a deteriorating condition due to age and the harsh environment. Revealed in the outcome are unique construction techniques, some are left exposed in the new works. Contemporary interventions have been undertaken and inserted within the heritage structure to make the building responsive to today's in-habitation standards.
