Ewert Leaf provided a sleek and contemporary residential renovation to an existing single fronted Victorian terrace house in South Yarra, Melbourne.

Landlocked on both sides and restricted by council and heritage stipulations, the brief required a new open plan living/kitchen area which opened onto a courtyard, along with a new upper storey for a master bedroom, with a WIR, en-suite and external balcony.

The narrow 5m wide site required clever use of spatial angles to create a sense of space. This was achieved by creating a double height void over the new stair featuring windows which provide glimpses of the skyline. This sense of openness was further emphasised through the use of defined angles and white walls to brighten the centre of the house.
