They would use the town house for weekend stays in the big smoke and saw the work we were doing elsewhere in East Melbourne.
They approached us to look at their house with the view of fitting it out ready for their permanent move to Melbourne
The original house was poorly designed with a succession of small rooms, narrow corridors and stairways.
We basically gutted the whole interior and opened the ground floor up into one space, placing the kitchen at the front, street end of the house and the living areas at the rear with a glazed wall onto the courtyard garden
New windows were inserted into the original external walls and Vental blinds installed over the top two levels to inhibit heat gain from the morning sun. The courtyard was repaved and long reflecting pool built to provide interest and focal axis
