This small, single story, 4m frontage Victorian workers cottage is in need of a facelift for it’s growing family, with a DA that proposes a complete overhaul of the property. With storage and natural light being at the top of their ‘must have’ list, the owners wanted a simple, yet functional, solution for the tiny terrace. The design proposes a new addition featuring two new bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, as well as a master suite with a bay window and walk-in-robe. Downstairs, the front room is keeping it’s heritage features, such as the original fireplace and the Victorian lacework on the facade, and includes a second bathroom, a multi-functional guest/sitting room and a large light filled entertaining space that opens out on to the rear courtyard. The inclusion of a central breezeway allows natural light to enter the centre of the property as well as airflow and will feature a small garden within the centre of the property. Plenty of joinery and a laundry tucked under the stairs means storage is maximised, and every nook and cranny is utilised. Finishes such as polished concrete floors, timber look joinery and black framed windows will making stepping through the old, into the new, a seamless, yet contemporary transition.
