Additions and Alterations

Carlton North Extension

This project is a the extension to a single fronted worker’s cottage on Drummond St, Carlton North.  The brief was for a new family room, downstairs bathroom and laundry leading out to a timber deck.  The first floor was to have a new master bedroom, walk in robe an ensuite.

The main challenges of this project were the very small site size with a substantial, irregular shaped easement to the rear.  The solution was to make the spaces multi-function, so that the dining spaces could also act as part of the kitchen, and the living room could be part of the dining spaces.  The use of high ceilings also made the spaces feel larger with more natural light.
