extension to rear with waterpipe pergola

    

Our
practice is quite enamored with post WWII duplex
housing, of which the Burnley Racecourse Estate is the first Melbourne
example. See our previous projects with 2 bedroom versions of the type
in Hampton East and
Preston.

In Burnley, an oddly shaped extension
retains the charms of the original house and maintains a usable backyard with
passive solar access.

It integrates readily identifiable sustainable ambitions
into the building fabric with a Trombe wall entry and a Sky planter frame / water pipe pergola.
In coordination with new garden areas the project
offers a long term home for the family, the 3 kids, their chickens, dog, bikes,
vegie garden and kayaks.
