1850’s Blue-stone Cottage

An 1850’s home with a 1970’s addition. A complex, rambling house provided an interesting narrative on which to build. The addition is unique, a new address to the home, a new front door, a new master suite and a new heart. Its sculptural form respects the heritage nature of Fitzroy, and the neighbours, whilst proudly standing on its corner allotment.


The project includes:

  • the renovation of an existing blue stone extension
  • construction of a new 2 level extension clad in grey iron bark timber and zinc
  • integrated timber joinery with concrete bench tops
  • grey iron bark clad internal walls and ceiling
  • feature up-lighting from joinery and walls, ceiling clear of down-lighting
  • hydronic heated polished concrete floors
  • switchable / dimmable glass windows
  • solid timber windows and doors
  • landscaped courtyard integrated with the new and existing buildings
