Extensive refurbishment was required to update this typical two storey Victorian home in inner-city Melbourne. The owner desired more entertainment space, achieved via an extension to the rear of the building incorporating additional family living space and improvements to the utility of and connections to the outdoor areas. The interiors were refreshed with a white base and modern finishes to draw light in wherever possible. A heritage restriction concerning an existing brick chimney (part of the old kitchen) was overcome by demolishing it and rebuilding it above the new extension.
