george street residence . conceptual studies

we begin design work for alterations and additions to an existing single level victorian house in fitzroy.  a corner site, the length of the site faces the side street with northern orientation.

the combination of the corner site together with its orientation allows the new addition at the rear to open up on two sides, a rare opportunity in any inner city context.  this creates a new addition that is in direct contrast to the existing spaces of the period house.

dark, constrained existing spaces vs large, light expansive spaces
