Located on a small residential site in the bayside suburb of Middle Park, this project sought to renovate and restore a single fronted Victorian terrace house as well as provide additional accommodation to the rear. Due to the heritage status of the existing building this prompted us to design the new works to minimise it’s visibility from the front by setting the rear extension well back from the street.

Our approach was to retain the front hallway and two bedrooms which then leads into the new living, dining and kitchen area at the rear which can be opened up to the courtyard to the rear. By designing the main family space with high ceilings and spanning the full width of the site, the sense of space in this room is unexpected and striking. The white metal feature stairs takes you to the first floor which houses the master bedroom, ensuite and parent’s retreat.

Due to the small site size, every element of the design had to be well considered and customised to suit the clients’ needs to be both functional and beautiful at the same time. A durable, tactile palette of materials of metal and timber add warmth and texture to the external façade whilst internally the selection of materials and fixtures add character and individuality to each space.

Multifamily Housing Designed with a Shiny Colorful Ceramic Facade

A volume created from the urban needs after the emergence of a new avenue, changing the section of the street and the height of the buildings around it. That temporary space between what once was and what currently is planned, causes a hybrid street, changing and surprising.
