Nic Owen Architects completed this project in Fitzroy North, Victoria, Australia, which involved renewing an old terrace, extending the existing space, and building a modern home while respecting the restrictions imposed by the historic Victorian neighborhood.
The brief was to create “a larger house with a bright and airy feel to cater for their growing family”.
The clients also requested for a better dialogue between interior and exterior. In addition, they wanted to enjoy the benefits of a spacious, lovely new home, characterized by warmth and luminosity. “The site is in a tight planning area with strict heritage controls, street and side views were of a heightened historic consideration.”
