Fitzroy North House
The rear of this existing dwelling faces North, however the existing house is encumbered with a rabbit warren of rear bathroom & utility areas, preventing direct access to sun & garden.
The project comprises additions & alterations which will rationalise & revitalise internal spaces and provide a new sun-filled open-plan kitchen/ dining/ living area spilling onto the garden.
The house is a contributory building within a heritage overlay. Local timber picket fences have been explored as a design precedent. The rear cladding is a permeable screen comprising picket fence elements. The upper level shutter will provide speckled light when closed & solar shading when open.
