This block for this architectural design project is set within an historic conservation zone. The existing house on the site was listed as a contributory item—it was dilapidated and needed to be demolished. Our role was to seek permission to replace the house with a new family home. We consulted with the local council’s heritage department and achieved our goal. This classic contemporary home had similar scale and proportions of the previous home, maintaining consistency with the streetscape. It was designed with an internal courtyard facing north and a pool in the middle of the house.
