"In a striking architectural transformation, this imaginative juxtaposition of old and new breathes fresh life into an existing villa and is reminiscent of the clients’ Melbourne terrace-house dwelling days. The traditional villa features are seamlessly complemented by a sweeping vertical-battened curve leading into the new addition. Here, a serene interior palette invites tranquility with ample daylight introduced through carefully placed new openings. The vertical curve language extends gracefully into the playful brick façade of the new additions."
