This boom-time terrace in Melbourne’s inner north under-took a significant overhaul as the internal spaces were opened up to create connection and flow throughout an a previously internal and dark Victorian interior. Significant heritage listings prevented any significant external works. A black steel, contemporary window box punctures the rear north-facing facade, and takes advantage of the northern orientation. Formal reception rooms were given a new lease of life, with new openings made onto the grand hallway with colour, wall paper and decoration being embraced. Kitchens and bathrooms are clean and bright, while keeping the palette simple and refined. This old Victorian style house now has been given a new life as a contemporary family home that embraces and celebrates its past and future.

Broombank House by SOUP Architects

The Broombank House is set into the banks of the sloped site and accessed via a single-track lane that arrives into a sunken entrance courtyard, offering glimpses of the views beyond. The brief from our client was to create a relaxed contemporary house within a reconsidered, ‘natural’ landscape that blurred the site boundaries to its neighbours and adjoining marshland.
