Hawthorn 1 / McSteen Tan Architects

The project is a renovation and extension of an 1890?s Victorian Brick House in Hawthorn, Victoria, Australia. The client requested to retain and improve the existing original home and also extend it to suit their expanding family of three children and two parents. They wanted an addition that would allow them to retain a backyard for cricket playing family, loss of day light and privacy from neighbours.

The existing interior of the house features 12 foot high ceilings, elaborate cornices, ceiling roses and skirtings and very well proportioned rooms and passage ways. It was important that the new works reflected the strength of the existing home in a contemporary design.
