Eyelid House

South Yarra , 2007

Winner of the 2007 AIA Residential Architecture Houses Award Shortlisted for 2007 AIA Colorbond Award Shortlisted 2007 for best Architectural Service arbv The rear addition to this inner city Victorian terrace features a roof form that has been manipulated like an eyelid to prevent any overlooking from the three-storey neighbouring giant. An arabesque interior including modern stained glass and routed ply screens is complemented by the owner’s collection of old Turkish rugs and furniture. The resultant design is contemporary, but one that simultaneously creates an exotic ambiance. Photography: Emma Cross

Las Chicas Cafe

Carlisle Street East St Kilda, 2004

Sensation and flavour are the key ingredients for a successful café. This low-budget fit-out of an old shopfront in Carlisle Street ties in demanding practical needs with quirks of the surrounds for a perfect fit. The long skinny space is exaggerated with a full-length skylight and timber battened night-light inspired by notions of the adjacent railway and by the local urban textures. The skylight leads out to an open rear courtyard, whereas inside customers can experience the feel of a bustling peak-hour railway carriage, without having to pay for the privilege!

Victoria Road House

Hawthorn, 2011

Winner of Creative Interior Glass Application Viridian Vision Awards 2012 Shortlisted 2012 AIA Residential Architecture Houses Award The crescent shaped addition to this home in Victoria Road is an unexpected rear extension to a charming but formal Victorian villa in one of Melbourne’s most conservative suburbs. Instead of the box on the back, this extension is the remnant of a circular cut-out made into the rear north facing back yard. Housing a fluid arrangement for living, dining and kitchen areas, the new space is as much about experiencing the private garden and pool beyond as it is about being within the space. The new addition is a contrast to and questions the structured cellular formality of the original dwelling by providing a new freedom in the social hub of the house. Photography: Emma Cross
