High House: Fluid Design in Fitzroy

Dan Gayfer Design renovated a home that sought to “turn inner city terrace living on its head” in Melbourne’s Fitzroy that focused on “the convenience of inner city living, without compromising on space, function, interaction, flexibility and light.”

5 Inspiring Terrace Renovations

Many of our inner-city houses are terraces; full of character, but often small and at odds with what we want. Transforming poky spaces into spacious family homes, here are five inspiring projects that show Australian architects are well equipped at making small spaces completely liveable.

Two Homes, Two Generations, One Roof

HOUSE house is an appropriate name for this twin-dwelling in Melbourne’s Richmond. Using the shell of two Victorian Terraces, Maynard Architects have designed one piece of architecture that acts as two homes.

House Bruce Alexander

Suburban living at its best. Philippa Daly looks at a conservative house in the Sydney suburb of Surry Hills where Tribe Studio Architects have forged a graceful solution to inner-city living.

Paranaque House, Manila

Fusing modernist and Colonial Spanish typologies, architect and resident Sacha Cotture has created a spacious dwelling that showcases a diverse and textural palette of local materials.

Terrace Transformation

A mindful, intelligent renovation of a Melbourne terrace house yields a bright, flexible space that belies its modest size and engages with the surrounding urban texture.

Kanoon Studio, Bangkok

This house by Kanoon Studio is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood of Bangkok. Known for their distinctive design, Chartchalerm Klieopatinon and Vasuvat Mettapun here offer an alternative solution for an urban home.
