The Port Melbourne Heritage Cottage is an extension and renovation to a heritage listed home in Melbourne’s inner south-west suburbs. The design creates a sense of spaciousness that defies the constraints of its tight urban setting. A transformation that allows a young family to remain in a neighbourhood they cherish and live in a contemporary home that provides them with ample space to grow.

 

A second storey addition at the rear of the cottage creates space for two extra bedrooms in a loftlike setting. Discreet windows capture city views and deliver natural light to the interior. Downstairs, a compact kitchen and living space is made to feel more generous by means of a double height volume created above the lounge. A skylight and high level window introduce light from above and illuminate the pathway from the front door.
