Description by architect: Two storey rear extension to an existing single storey brick house in an inner city heritage overlay area of Melbourne with a brief centered around bicycles and wine collecting.

Abbotsford House 1

What was the brief?
We were asked to design a home that would store a thousand bottles of wine and eight bicycles for a young professional couple without children.

Abbotsford House 2

What were the key challenges?
The site was a small inner city site with limited access as well as having a heritage overlay on the site. Constraints of overshadowing, overlooking and visual bulk were a key part of the design response.

Abbotsford House 3

What are the sustainability features?
Solar panels and solar hot water were used in the design as well as insulation and double glazing and consideration for glazing extent and location.

Brasov Apartment with Intense Interior Atmosphere and Saturated Colours

The project theme, in a way, was following the very first thought. The client appreciated various types of wood and dense, saturated colours. He wanted a rather dark and intense interior atmosphere. And those clear lines became a new tool of defining and outlining the exterior views inside the house.
