south yarra house


This is an unusual Victorian house.

The attractive elements of the existing Victorian house were retained and refurbished but the cellular nature of the Victorian plan was cut into and cut away from, to create an amalgamation of private cellular spaces and open communal spaces that represents the ideal configuration of the modern house. The new rear façade and garden exploit the environmental context and introduce light, shade, air, city views, and greenery to the historic interiors.
