Melbourne’s Taylor Knights Architects delivered an innovative design, built by fine craftsmen that incorporated light-filled spaces throughout. This design brief was based on a busy family of four, who entertain regularly. They required four bedrooms, two living areas, an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge plus a rooftop terrace, all within a modest block and building footprint.

The clients wanted to keep the heritage frontage and associated rooms. In contrast, they desired a modern, airy double storey addition that gives great flexibility, while having a constant connection to the sky and scapes. The long heritage hall dramatically joins the old and new with a black steel portal. You are immediately introduced to the extension and greeted by the kitchen and living hub in concrete and wood finishes.

The white, splashes of black and yellow add drama alongside the double height ceilings, skylights and highlight windows. The lively yellow and skylight above are a welcoming surprise that adds vigor to the stairs and upstairs space. The rooftop deck serves spectacular city views, while being set back keeps a cozy and privacy from neighbours. Taylor Knight meticulously planned and executed all these design details and quirks. The result, individual spaces with multiple roles while maintaining the charm of the original home.
