“A renovation and extension to the rear of a heritage Victorian terrace in Fitzroy North, Melbourne. This project is for a young family with 2 children who wished to stay in their current house and renovate to suit their requirements. The 2 story renovation and extension includes 4 bedrooms, study and 2 bathrooms on a very small site of 140m2 whilst respecting the amenities of neighboring buildings and historic concerns.

With clever design small spaces can feel larger than they actually are. Filled with natural light, vaulted ceilings and the abundance of skylights this 5 meter wide site borrows views and connects to the outside creating a feeling of space. A project which despite historical restrictions, solar limitations and the small site a family house was created which addresses all key concerns, creating the ‘big little’ house.”
