Infill, South Melbourne
by Rowan Opat Architects in Association with John Davidson of Catalyst Design Group

    

IN THE ARCHITECTS WORDS

The client is the owner of a Heritage listed site in South Melbourne. The site contained a shop and dwelling (circa1900) fronting Clarendon Street with an empty space at the rear. The client engaged the architect to design a structure on the empty yard space, which would satisfy the heritage controls and co exist with the existing structure. The client
 
 

also required that the construction cause minimum interruption to the existing shop and dwelling. The challenge of this project was to cater for the Heritage controls with a design response that was progressive. Completed in May 2002, the project resulted in a 4.5 wide by 10.5m long, 3 storey building, which has the appearance of being two storeys.
