Text description provided by the architects. Middle Park is home to some of the best preserved and aged architecture in the city of Melbourne, and this extension to a three bedroom private residence builds upon this reputation. A material palette of stone, concrete and metal integrates an interplay of languages that will stand the test of time.

This hovering hidden gem delineates an alfresco area affixed to an open planned living space, affirming the theme of integration, and creating a pastiche of past and present that is perpetually worthy of its time and place.
