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”.
