Elsternwick Addition by Sketch Building Design

Nestled amongst a row of Victorian terraces, this two bedroom, single fronted, traditional house has been transformed into a light filled, three bedroom, smart family space.

The project required a full town planning permit, including heritage assessment. The design brief was to create a large open plan living zone, with the entire upper level to be a parents’ retreat. The client placed a large emphasis on maximising the amount of natural light and space. This was successfully achieved through the creation of an architectural form that challenges conventional renovation design.

The distinctive and clean built form, coupled with elegant interiors provides a striking contemporary addition that is in harmony with the original Victorian terrace.
