Albert Park Renovation
This Albert Park renovation was to an existing brick Victorian terrace house in an inner -city suburb of Melbourne. The clients were a professional couple, an interior designer and project manager. The existing home was beginning to look tired and the 1980’s two-storey rear extension was in need of modernisation. The existing layout of the property was retained, with a small extension to accommodate a walk-in-robe, whilst the main alterations were to the form of the 80’s extension. The transformation included an increased sense of space, additional natural light, and a stronger connection to the outdoors.
The inspiration for the extension was from the Eames House – a landmark mid-20th century modernist architecture – located in Los Angeles by Charles and Ray Eames, which is a favourite of both the client’s and mine.
Due to Albert Park close proximity to Port Phillip Bay the clients requested the use of durable external materials, thus zinc and timber (left natural to grey over time) were specified.
JCA were responsible for the design and documentation of the architectural component, whilst one of the clients was responsible for the interiors.
The success of this Albert Park project wasn’t solely down to the design team, as credit needs to be given to the project’s fantastic foreman and builder.
