Custom Home Builders Fitzroy North

Successful creative outcomes integrate passion and informed thinking. APC Build worked with the owners and Buro Architects to achieve a full refurbishment of the existing home including a bedroom for guests and a second living space.

To allow a quiet space for one owner, an author, a rear guest studio above a garage was briefed as a separate structure. A family-friendly solution was essential to allow both the upstairs and the downstairs living spaces and the guest studio to flow seamlessly into the outdoor spaces.

The new living space with kitchenette is positioned under the upper level terrace and skylights above filter natural light down into the space whilst maintaining privacy from the side laneway. External stairs wrap around the space creating a fusion between the upstairs living space and the garden. Customised timber panel joinery units, curved ceilings, standing seam cladding and cantilevered metal shrouds combine to create carefully considered additions making economic use of the existing fabric and readapting it for contemporary family life.

Creativity meets family function.
