House / January 23, 2019 / Adreanna Marie
The now 2,700 square foot home is located in Fitzroy, an inner city suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
The conversion of the building to a single family residence required a response that balanced the heritage value of the existing building (which had been deemed individually significant), with the desire of the client for a high tech environmentally sustainable house that reflected their needs as a tight-knit family.
Although sited in a dense urban setting, the brief called for a “sense of the natural environment and the seasons with views to the sky from the interior”. The clients also commented that the family members “tend to gravitate towards one another from different areas of the house”.
