Balwyn – Victoria, 2011
Arising out of a sketch prepared in mid 2009, this stately two storey Arts & Crafts residence was restored and augmented. Vehicular access occurs from a rear lane – allowing forward egress into its main road location. This motivated an architectural response highlighting the building’s new rear as a second facade – greeting its owners and visitors upon vehicular access. Traditional “head, body & base” expressed by the original building were re-stated in the addition. Internally, timber panelling – such a feature of the Arts & Crafts – is re-presented along with modern loftiness to add warmth – while reaching out to include solar penetration through an Alfresco deck facing north east. This aims to facilitate bright breakfast conversation from a podium position. Full architectural services served to control the finer points of restoration and new building work integrated in the framework afforded by an ABIC building contract.
Armadale – Victoria, 2009
A 2005 sketch was developed through late 2006 and tendered in mid 2007. This Edwardian brick residence was substantially restored and a 2 storey pavilion added in an articulated parte. Client aims of providing respect for original principal rooms while establishing modern notions of space and fitout in a new light filled pavilion were realised after a rigourous process of constructional and interiors detailing. The challenge of providing solar penetration into and through the new southern pavilion was achieved by articulating front and rear building envelopes using a low roofed link device. Whilst this is not a substantial architectural feature, it is a silent driver for a surprising experience once the traditionally dimly lit hallway opens into new light space. Separate interior treaments for original and new pavilions add to daily enjoyment of appropriate textures, light and space.
Kew – Victoria, 2008
This second stage project of a heritage Edwardian residence commenced in 2006 – a modest first stage of internal alterations having been carried out in 2001. It added a modern and articulated pavilion to the traditional front. Importantly, a 1980’s low grade addition was transformed – becoming the link device between 3m. high ceilings of the original and new raking ceilings of the addition. A new lantern punctuates and transforms this low slung link – taking advantage of a northern side aspect – bringing brightness deep into the heart of kitchen, eating and living spaces. Alfresco living at the north east opens onto an external “play” space – a Modgrass essay for cricket training, golf putting and basketball practice – very popular with children and their friends.
