  Kew     "Kennedy Nolan’s reworking of this previously renovated house (late 
Edwardian and then 80s) respects its site and context with an elegantly 
united architectural solution to the classic ‘alts ‘n’ adds’ challenge, 
embraces it through multi-level and multi-directional connection with 
the landscape, filters it through carefully placed screening elements 
and generates a singular architectural gesture out of a tripartite group
 of potentially unengaged elements...    ...These architects have reduced
 the previous anomalies, and introduced strong guiding principles for 
the building that are robust enough to ensure that the line between new 
and old is difficult to identify. They answer the question of how to 
contribute well to the suburbs by doing precisely what Boyd expected of 
them – in order to densify the suburbs, you must make better use of the 
space, efficiently and more pleasurably".      Kylie Fitt, Australian Design Review, September 9, 2010     Photography by  Derek Swalwell      Plan
