Lawry Street Residence is a beautifully renovated home tucked away in Melbourne’s inner-north suburb of Northcote. The owners required an extension to their existing double-fronted Victorian weatherboard home and the addition of a two-storey studio out back. The project was undertaken by Melbourne-based boutique architecture studio, Ha Architecture in collaboration with Interior Architect, Jen Lowe and the result is truly charming.

From the architect: ‘Lawry Street’ consisted of an extension with new living and wet areas and a new studio structure in the garden. The new exterior works are a reinterpretation of the existing weatherboard language. The living room incorporates a high-light north window allowing winter sun to bathe the living areas and provide natural heating in cooler months.

Lawry Street Residence Ha Architecture 1 We intentionally minimised and framed the exterior views, reducing glass expanses on the southern façade while still creating a connection to the rear yard. The extention of the brick plinth from the interior to exterior was designed to physically and visually connect inside and out.
