Working within the tight confines of Port Phillip Council's heritage guidelines, this double storey addition to the single fronted Victorian terrace successfully blends the existing period home with modern open plan living. The proposal comprises of 3 bedrooms, separate study and 2 bathrooms. The ground floor open plan living completely opens up to the north facing private courtyard. On the upper level, the carefully articulated rear facade enables views of the city while maintaining appropriate privacy to adjoining neighbours
