This project was completed at the end of 2015.
This was a complete house renovation and extension to a single fronted Edwardian house in Northcote utilising a palette of concrete, steel, cedar and plasterboard as a backdrop to daily cycles of light and shadow.
Ceiling and wall forms have been conceived to play on our perspectival perception, a 3-dimensional Gestalt space. The perception of this new interior space aims to challenge the occupants' understanding and awareness of scale from different interior vantage points. Depending on one's location within the space, the building and items within hope to stimulate and challenge, appearing sometimes larger, sometimes smaller.
The front section is completely restored with a new floor structure, internal linings, rewiring along with complementary adjustments in response to contemporary living. The new extension replaces a previous poorly constructed extension and is clearly a new architectural element to the existing which is evident at the end of the existing hall.
