A two storey Victorian terrace was given a new lease on life with an extensive renovation and two storey addition at the rear. An archway was added to the hallway to connect it to the existing living area and open up both spaces. Panelling was added to the walls in the original part of the house in order to reference its heritage. The new addition comprises of an open plan kitchen, living and dining area with marble benchtops and a striking oak herringbone floor. Pared back joinery and contemporary detailing contrast with the ornate heritage part of the house, which allows each part to shine independently.
