The renovation of this heritage home by Aleksandra Savic Rakocevic of Star Architecture honours the historical significance of the frontage, whilst replacing the existing back extension of the property.

The luxurious renovation of this heritage home in the Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn pays respect to the historical significance of the classic Victorian frontage, while the existing back extension built in the early nineties is replaced by a minimal palette of contemporary materials and design.

Old And New

The extension spans three levels, a display of modern resplendence with open spaces, simple geometric shapes, and an abundance of light. The glass lift and stair tower connecting the basement to the upper levels is a feature of the design, along with the private lookout nook on the second storey with a stunning unobstructed view of Melbourne city. The imposing nature of the bold structure is eased by green walls and glass panels, reflecting sunlight by day, and glowing internally at night.

A Collection Of Spaces Linked Through Access And Aesthetic Design

The luxurious renovation of this heritage home in the Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn pays respect to the historical significance of the classic Victorian frontage.

A Display Of Modern Resplendence With Open Spaces

The rear garden now features a pool, gym, pool pavilion, and tennis court. These spaces are all linked through access ways and the contemporary aesthetic of the design. Beneath the old house, the existing wine cellar connects with a basement suitable for eight cars. The space also features a car wash, a bar, and an entertainment area for social gatherings.

And An Abundance Of Light

The imposing nature of the bold structure is eased by green walls and glass panels, reflecting sunlight by day, and glowing internally at night.

And An Entertainment Space For Social Gatherings.

The architectural paradoxes in the design of the renovated home by Star Architecture compliment each other through dramatic contrast. The home is a true study in architectural differences, from the old and new, stone and glass, classic and contemporary. Visual overlap occurs in the bluestone wall cladding, mirrored in the blue stone foundations visible from ground level in the existing façade, evidence that the heritage listing is respected through the contemporary design.
