Port Melbourne Heritage CottageMidcentury Kitchen, Melbourne

This Port Melbourne Heritage Cottage extension re-imagines this family home on a constrained urban site.

The clients are a young family with a brief that was seeking space to grow and extend their enjoyment of the house and location that they love. Having had a previous extension slotted into the back of it the workers cottage was full of character but was lacking in appropriate space for the contemporary life of a young family.

The concept was to carefully articulate an upper floor extension with some internal reconfiguration that would compliment the existing character and scale of the Contributory Heritage building whilst increasing the sense of light and volume internally.

A restricted palate of materials with large new openings add a richness whilst creating city views and increased natural light.

4. Pantry panicDid this woman start to clean out her pantry, then suddenly remember she had something better to do? Pantry items can lurk well past their prime, as they are progressively reshuffled further to the back of shelves. But cometh the hour when a total purge is inescapable.Clever clean: Read everything you need to know in this step-by-step plan for an organised pantry. Set aside plenty of time and get rid of those last century use-by date items.

10. Stock the pantryNovember crowds are nothing compared to December ones, and any food shopping you do now may save a frantic last-minute dash. With your menu and guest lists all sorted, buy as many list items as possible – like cooking staples, wine, beverages and anything that’s freezable – now. Don’t forget to organise other meals as well as the main event – for instance, stock up on basics like cereals, tea and coffee for Christmas breakfast, as well as food for the following day. Hooray for supermarkets and delis with online shopping and delivery services!
