This little gem of a project in the inner Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn adds a beautiful veiled extension to an existing 1890’s single fronted Victorian weatherboard cottage.
Maintaining the scale and materiality of the existing house, the two-storey extension to the rear creates a light filled, open plan space for contemporary family living.
The design provides considerable additional space for the family while articulating views and daylight to surrounding neighbours. A private concealed balcony from the master suite provides city views to the west. A series of carefully considered skylights and double height spaces flood the house with natural daylight and increase the sense of space.
The project completed on site in June 2015.
