Residential Addition, Clifton Hill

Adding a modern black box to the rear two thirds of a house in a heritage area is such a cliché, in this case it is accurate, other than this is a white box. Retaining the entry hall and first two rooms of this demure Victorian cottage we have added a two-story element of opposing butterfly roofs separated by a central courtyard and lightwell. The result is an addition sympathetic to its neighborhood while managing to feel lighter, brighter and larger than it deserves on its small footprint.
