This Revived Victorian Cottage with a Rear Addition is Full of Light and Modernity
The idea of giving a Victorian cottage a modern makeover is all too common on the face of it. But every renovation, addition or extension demands something different and unique. The Hawthorn Lawes Street extension in Melbourne goes down a different path with its new rear extension and refurbishment as it also gets a new street faade! With most Victorian homes and cottages, the street front of the house is completely left untouched or given a quick brush up at the most. But with this smart Melbourne project, the faade is redone using naturally oiled Cyprus timber battening.
