Celebrating its arboreal aspect from the neighbouring trees, the addition which accommodates a major function space, was conceived of as a conservatory. The design approach interweaves and overlaps new and old. The rhythm of the roof and other new elements – both structural and not – take their cue from the original one set by Harvie in the distinctive mullion window wall that encompasses level 1 and 2.


While both architectures draw from a Modernist repertoire their alternate interior atmospheres and laneway presentation complement each other through subtle difference.
