Located in leafy Nillumbik shire in Melbourne’s north east, our Eltham project is a dramatic reorganisation of an existing house to adapt to and provide for a young family’s changing needs as their children move through school.

The new addition negotiates the contours of a gently sloping block to sit more comfortably in its setting – amongst established gum trees. The house has a clear separation between the public / shared and private domains – with public domain including for comfortable everyday living and larger entertaining areas.  The existing house with its deep plan was dark – by opening up the perimeter and piercing the roof with skylights we are able to flood the interior with natural light.
