Positioned in Melbourne’s Domain precinct, this residence meshes the character filled historic architecture with the crisp detailing of a modern addition.


Built in 1929 this Melbourne property began life as two duplexes, one of which was originally inhabited by the famous artist Sunday Reed before her move to Heide Gallery, Heidelberg.

In its former life, the imposing building seen from the street, was composed of many forms, including French Chateaux, Edwardian and Victorian styles. 
 

 
 
Restoration of the dwelling internally and externally has united spaces.  
 
 
 
 
The architectural masterplan by Carr Design Group sought to celebrate the original structure and the well proportioned spaces, whilst updating them to provide a cohesive series of interior spaces.
 
 
 
 
 


A bold two storey glazed structure was added to the rear west face of the property to bring light into the heart of the home, defining a new circulation core to the building.  A large glazed skylight tracks the path of the sun throughout the day, filling the interior with light. 
 
 
 
Openings are lined with the introduction of steel portals and framing devices for reveals, panels and blades, marking the transition from original form to contemporary space, existing built form with that of the new, highly contemporary addition. 
 
 
 
Carr Design Group is an architecture and interior design practice with offices in Melbourne.
