Status

Construction

The Chatsworth House is a renovation of an existing double fronted late Victorian style home in Prahran. Our brief was to partially demolish the existing house, retaining the heritage façade to the street and propose a new double storey extension.

 

The extension was carefully designed to take into account the sites neighbouring properties and their existing amenities by manipulating the building mass to suit each condition. The proposed extension allows for a three bedroom house, study, generous en-suite and bathrooms, open plan living, dining and kitchen with direct access to westerly lit courtyard.

 

The existing dwelling lies within a heritage overlay and is classified as a Class B building. The proposed extension takes into account the dwellings architectural and historic contribution to the local precinct. One of the key features of the design is to retain the existing wall along Bayview Street which therefore preserves the historic character at street level.

 

The design of the extension is distinctive and yet subtle from the exterior. Vertical interlocking Anthra-Zinc Panels clad the exterior to mirror the charcoal painted exterior roofing and wrought iron lacework and detailing of the existing dwelling. The western façade displays the arrangement of three boxes which all vary in size, depth and proportion creating a dynamic interface with the courtyard. The three box solution breaks down the visual mass of the extension and therefore reduces the building impact to the existing street.
