Elgin Street Residence is a alteration and addition project completed in 2017 by Sonelo Design Studio. The house is located in Carlton, Victoria, Australia.

From the architect: Manipulating the sense of spaciousness is the epitome of the alterations additions to this single storey Victorian-era terrace duplex. Demolition of existing outbuilding and lean-to makes room for the new.

Necessary yet poetic, a new courtyard, defined by a deciduous tree and evergreen ground covers, is deftly placed before the new double storey brick addition.

Two angled steel apertures pierce the north facade of the addition, framing the courtyard downstairs and releasing the bedroom suite upstairs to a distant view.

The grey-tinted-mirror clad kitchen dining interior impresses a sense of spaciousness, cleverly disguising the edge of the room, reflecting the courtyard greens, and discreetly concealing the bathroom.
