Award Winner 2017 Victorian Architecture Awards Residential Architecture Houses - New
An early Victorian workers cottage has a familiar and specific spatial quality that is connected to an efficiency in its means of construction and a considered use of ornament. This home has been expanded to meet the needs of an inner city family in a way that builds on tradition by a reframing to align with contemporary needs. The project embodies concepts that support small footprint living while also revisiting spatial traditions of the original house and by exploring alternatives for the spatial organisation of small spaces.
Quality of light cannot be underestimated. As such the size and placement of windows to each room was assessed to maintain a quality of space that is particular to a terrace house while also providing ample natural light. The facade opens and can be closed down to provide protection from solar heat gain living spaces will be comfortable and light filled.
