Around the Corner Northcote is a renovation project completed by Statkus Architecture.
Description by Statkus Architecture: The project comprised a renovation to an existing weatherboard house in Northcote. Previously rated at 1.5 stars this is now is a 5.3 star energy rated home with an extensive internal reconfiguration of spaces along with external decking & a new canopy. Once stage 2 is complete, the house will exceed a 6 star rating.
Retaining all the external walls and roof-lines in their current configurations, with new window and door openings along with a major interior reconfiguration of walls and spaces, the renovation has dramatically increased the home’s engagement with the environment, improving its livability, accessibility and year round comfort levels through the introduction of large north facing double glazing, combined with increased thermal mass, passive lighting, heating and cooling strategies.
