Occupying a corner site in the inner-city Melbourne suburb of Clifton Hill, Northside house provided an opportunity to explore sensitive alterations and additions to an intact Federation era home for a young family of four. As regular entertainers, the brief sort to balance a high degree of privacy and refuge while providing the ability to completely open up, warmly welcoming family, friends and locals dropping by. The additional built forms follow a similar volume as the existing houses’ prominent pitched roof form, to preserve and respect the heritage language of the subject property and its intact neighbours.
