Design Studio: 4site Melbourne


The client of this single fronted double brick terrace house in Carlton wanted to find an intelligent architectural response that would breath life into a dark and pokey dwelling.

The existing property is typical of Victorian terrace houses with a hallway and front two rooms configuration, then a poorly planned series of gloomy, dysfunctional lean-to additions, poor access to natural light and no direct connection to the rear yard. We responded to the client’s brief by retaining the original two bedrooms at the front, with a proposed double storey addition including bathroom, laundry, living, kitchen, dining area and an additional bedroom with en suite.

    Yes, the back half past the original 2 rooms where usually are lean-to structures were demolished and a new 2 storey structure added. The condition of the back part was poor, the bricks could be pulled out by bare hands as discovered during demolition!

    It's beautiful! Wonderful use of mixed materials and colour for exterior. Interior is now spacious, filled with light and floor plan flows very well. Clients must be so pleased! Great transformation.

    What a transformation! This is beautiful. We love the simple design in the bathroom - modern with plenty of natural light.

    Thanks, The Clipsal Team.
