One man's style must not be the rule of another's
Perrett Ewert Leaf Architects finnished this sleek, contemporary residential renovation to an existing single fronted Victorian terrace house in South Yarra, Melbourne. Landlocked on both sides and restricted by council and heritage stipulations, with a living kitchen backing onto the courtyard, along with adding a new uppers storey for the master bedroom and an external balcony deck. The tight 5m wide site required clever use of spatial angles to create a sense of opening up; eg. the double storey space over new stair with highlight window glimpses of the skyline, together with sharp angles and white walls to brighten the middle of the house as you walk through.
