    Elwood House

    The Elwood House by Therefore Studio is a contemporary extension to an existing heritage home. The architectural response aims to maximise the function and amenity of a small footprint renovation, while the materials palette and detailing highlight texture and amplify the occupant’s sense of space.

    Project - 02.05.2016

    The site of the existing semi-detached Californian Bungalow is located in Melbourne’s beachside suburb of Elwood. The project consisted of demolishing a previous renovation to the home, retaining and restoring the 3 heritage rooms to the street front, and adding a new two story extension at the rear. 

    The result is what the architects refer to as ‘small footprint living’, noting that they generally encourage their clients to aim for ‘less but better’. This projects makes the most of the small footprint by trying to consolidate the living areas and the circulation into a larger more efficient space. The designers then employed purposeful design moves to define areas within that larger living space without needing to close them off. 

    Natural materials are shaped via clean detailing and offset with powdercoated steel accents. Texture and light are expressed throughout the materiality of the project. Contributing to this theme, Living Edge provided Muuto Cover Chairs and e15 ST10 Jean Stools.
