Dalgarno, Williamstown

Existing Canvas:

Existing single storey heritage dwelling with high level heritage overlays


Design 2 storey family addition to suit a growing family and home office


Council heritage overlays & tight site access

Design Philosophy:

  • Sympathetic to street integration, recessive upper floor and roof lines
  • Use of cantilevers to maximize external rear yard
  • Capitalize on city views from upper level without loss of amenity to adjoining properties
  • Create abundance of storage space in the existing dwelling gable roof
  • Orientation of upper floor design to allow maximum natural light to lower floor
  • Use of traditional timber weatherboards and vertical metal


Beautifully balanced rear addition that provides a contemporary edge to the heritage front portion of the dwelling
