fitroy north residence

fitzroy north, 2015

It’s a common story, a couple find their dream location: inner city, close to good schools, shops, the cbd, galleries and great restaurant, but their house…a dream? not so much. EME has taken this heritage cottage and alterned and extended it in a light airy warehouse asthetic the clients love, whilst keeping it comfortable and homey for a growing family.

The beams have been revealed in the living space for a more spacious feel; northern light has been accessed over the neighbours with the addition of highlight windows. At the rear, where an old shed use to reside a new dark metal bedroom, ensuite and bike store looking out onto the garden. A corten link joins the old and the new. And the best part? All this improved amenity with only a 15% increase in footprint so there is still plenty of garden for the children to play in.
