Courage to pursue exciting new horizons through contemporary design is the true hallmark of this residential project by Christopher Elliott Design.

Often working within the parameters of a heritage listed Victorian house can lead to an overly conservative approach that limits creativity and results in a less than grandiose final design. Therefore it was a welcomed surprise to Christopher Elliott and his team when they discovered a client courageous enough to implement the progressive contemporary design that they had first envisioned.

The client was knowledgeable in both heritage and contemporary architecture allowing the design team to seamlessly blend the two disciplines with a distinctively Nordic inspired European approach – a region that is architecturally famed for celebrating the glory of the past in a more restrained modern context. The harmonious junction of the black steel glazing, against the sharp, clean architectural lines of the building exemplifies this beautifully.

Cool Melbourne Design And Interiors

The Christopher Elliott Design team employed their trademark ability to think outside the box in order to overcome the numerous challenges associated with working with Victorian Heritage architecture. The powder room was relocated, in the process making better use of a narrow area between the existing property and the boundary.

When it came to creating a design language that could transition between the original rooms of the house and the new extension, Christopher Elliott and his team sought to highlight the best of the period features and use materiality to harmonise the spaces.
