gable house

The owners of this double storey brick Victorian terrace located in Carlton North approached us with a single picture as inspiration (and later a scrap book of ideas). This picture was of a simple gable form – “this was to be our house!” So a series of gables gave us the starting point for the three storey extension.


The brief from the young family was for a full renovation, updated facilities, larger brighter spaces, and a connection to the outside – all lacking in their original terrace. The neighbouring building had a third floor dormer style room – this aided us in the planning and heritage process to propose a third floor space. This third floor studio / artistic space hides a roof top terrace behind.

This large four bedroom (plus studio) inner city dwelling demonstrates a sympathetic response to a historically sensitive inner-city living on a typically small site. carlton-north-03 carlton-north-04 carlton-north-05carlton-north-06 carlton-north-07 carlton-north-08carlton-north-09 carlton-north-11carlton-north-14 carlton-north-12carlton-north-13
