Melbourne Terrace House

Given its heritage status, the front faade of the house has been left in situ, while a new freestanding brick studio (housing a guest room, painting studio, workshop and laundry), addresses a quiet street to the rear of the property. Its the extension that provides all the clues as to the strategic thinking and visual language employed by the architects. Informed by the streets interface of roller doors and outbuildings, the addition is a utilitarian structure, rendered in stack bond brickwork, which gives the house an undeniably contemporary aesthetic.
