The owners of this heritage home in Port Melbourne, Australia, approached Thomas + Williams Architects to demolish a 25-year-old addition and replace it with something that would better serve their family of four. The new, two-story addition to the 1800s-era home now hosts two new children’s bedrooms and a playroom upstairs, and a new living hub below.
With the floor plan in place, the design brief was to keep the interior details simple. The architects responded by combining concrete, oak, prefabricated panels, and steel in thoughtful ways throughout. "It is a small site, so it was important to keep all design elements as simple as possible," say the architects.
