The starting point for this project was a dilapidated Victorian terrace that had been unlived in for 20 years. The concept sought to bring life back to this dwelling by restoring the original terrace and adding to it with a contemporary aesthetic that complements the existing and raises its amenity to the standard and requirements of today’s lifestyle. The approach was to integrate the new with the old by acknowledging the existing row of terraces and applying a scale and proportion to the addition which is in keeping with that created by the row.Save this picture!© Tom Ferguson PhotographySave this picture!© Tom Ferguson PhotographyWhilst considered a renovation, the entire existing dwelling was attended to with extensive remediation works performed to bring it back to a structurally safe and livable state as well fulfilling upgrades to today’s standards and codes. This site presented a raft of challenges which needed to be overcome. These include an irregular (triangular) shaped site, working around the constraints created by stormwater infrastructure in proximity to the proposal, bringing light into a typically dark terrace and designing to the stringent prerequisites of a flood zone and the site falling below a flight path.Save this picture!© Tom Ferguson PhotographySave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Tom Ferguson PhotographyThe resultant design adeptly works through all the challenges and presents an exceedingly comfortable family home, which acknowledges the streetscape and integratesthe new with the beautiful character of the old.Save this picture!© Tom Ferguson PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessEst-Nord-Est Artists’ Residence / Bourgeois / Lechasseur architectesSelected ProjectsRoc Von Restaurant / VTN ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Houses Builder: DCD Group P/L Save this picture!© Tom Ferguson Photography+ 17Curated by Paula Pintos Share Architects: Robert Parisi Architecture + Design Year Completion year of this architecture project Year: CopyHouses•Leichhardt, Australia Projects Photographs “COPY” House 2040 HS / Robert Parisi Architecture + DesignSave this projectSaveHouse 2040 HS / Robert Parisi Architecture + Design ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/929106/house-2040-robert-parisi-architecture-plus-design Clipboard 2018 Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Innowood, Polytec, Resene Lead Architect: CopyAbout this officeRobert Parisi Architecture + DesignOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLeichhardtOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on November 28, 2019Cite: “House 2040 HS / Robert Parisi Architecture + Design” 27 Nov 2019.
