A tiny run down weatherboard house in Yarraville, the four original rooms were retained while a series of small and poorly constructed add-ons were removed and new additions built.
The home is not large but has a terrific sense of space through clever use of courtyards, interconnected spaces and vaulted ceilings. The use of clearstory windows allows for a light filled space without direct heat gain in the summer months.
Spotted Gum tongue and groove cladding has been used on the exterior of the extension this compliments the existing weatherboard residence whilst giving it a contemporary edge. Copper elements are used as highlights on the exterior, with a copper clad window pop out over the pool and to the feature courtyard.
The house flows nicely and feels much larger than its square metreage with the interior and exterior spaces working closely together with inviting courtyards designed to enhance the adjacent spaces.
