Jane Cameron Architects Extension Renovation Port Melbourne

Port Melbourne Extension

This Port Melbourne project is for an extension and renovation to an existing Victorian home, for a young couple who saw the great potential in their new home.

The existing house has a poorly designed rear extension, which lacks natural light and ventilation, which will be demolished. This will be replaced with a new two-storey contemporary rear addition. 


The original part of the house was from the Mid Victorian period; which had been heavily renovated over time. Of the original features only a few remained, which include the incised weatherboards simulating blocks of stonework and the timber corbels under the guttering. 

It has been decided to reinstate the original features to the home; these include the windows, main entrance door, veranda roof, veranda posts, wrought iron; and timber veranda decking, cladding, and paling fence etc. Internally Victorian skirtings, cornices, architraves, and ceiling roses be reinstated.

The proposed extension has been setback from the street, in order to preserve the heritage streetscape. 

Rear two-storey addition

The extension has been designed to contrast with the existing Victorian dwelling, both internally and externally. 

The addition will comprise of an open plan kitchen, living and dining area. The first floor will consist of a master bedroom suite with walk-in-robe and ensuite, with a small study and large balcony.

The Port Melbourne project is currently at Town Planning Stage.
