This 2 bedroom extension to a 1930’s Residence in Melbourne’s east is centered around an external courtyard deck which provides a dynamic link between the house and a detached studio beyond. A clerestorey tower at one end and a two storey component at the other create a bookend effect providing a sense of enclosure to the outdoor. The bookend towers, visible from the front of the existing house, landmark the new work reflecting the changing needs of its users.

Save this picture!© Kevin Hui & Adrian RivallandAlterations and Additions are limited to the rear of the house leaving the main body of the existing house completely intact. Local Council uphold Heritage considerations for neighbourhood character. The new work has been intentionally designed to contrast the existing residence. A low transition element provides a link between the old and new construction. The higher additions at the rear are set well back from the original construction to minimize any overshadowing. Opportunity to explore the use and application of colour and texture gives each user a theme with a linking pattern where the ceramic tile format is based on the size of the original wet areas.Save this picture!© Kevin Hui & Adrian RivallandProject gallerySee allShow lessPennDesign 2012 Spring Lecture SeriesArticlesStudent Housing for TU Delft Campus / Studioninedots + HVDNArticles Share Architects: Marc Dixon Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Kevin Hui & Adrian Rivalland+ 49 Share Refurbishment In Melbourne / Marc DixonSave this projectSaveRefurbishment In Melbourne / Marc Dixon CopyAbout this officeMarc DixonOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentResidentialRefurbishmentAustraliaPublished on February 06, 2012Cite: “Refurbishment In Melbourne / Marc Dixon” 06 Feb 2012.
