Text description provided by the architects. This design was developed to maximise the available light and space on an oddly shaped block in the inner suburban setting of Clifton Hill.

The original weatherboard cottage which addresses the street has been maintained while a new, two-level addition at the rear provides new kitchen and dining areas and a master bedroom suite.

Ground Floor Plan

The addition is angular and tapered in form with an overhanging upper level which allows for the living spaces to be drenched in light in winter while providing shade in summer.

Section D

Inside, a variety of subtly overlapping spatial volumes is achieved within a relatively simple overall form. The character of the natural materials such as timber and concrete is expressed against white surfaces with occasional moments of strong colour.
