Erskineville House.

Residential Exterior Design and Architecture - Erskineville - 180m2 with a 30m2 rear lane garage and studio.

Originally a basic brick one-story freestanding house, the client wanted to transform the small unremarkable structure into a character-filled large family home. Set in a heritage area of Victorian terraces, it was important the residential exterior design considered the streetscape and responded sympathetically to the neighbouring terraces. Situated adjacent to St Mary’s Catholic Church, the property's corner block location allowed the design to make a statement. 

The 1950's home was subject to major architectural and interior design changes. Cradle and Built Complete were tasked with the large-scale refurbishment which included a second storey, loft space and a new garage, as well as a modern residential facade design. Extensions to the property featured large windows to the side and rear which aided in creating an open-plan modern urban oasis.

The residential house design reflects the scale and form of the adjoining terraces and also provides the type of contemporary architecture and home design that generates real interest and appeal. Painted brickwork, sheet metal roofing with expressed parapets and natural timber cladding were selected to keep the residential exterior design sympathetic to the conservation area and in line with current property facades. Glazed brickwork was used on the wall and side lane boundary for its architectural interest and anti-graffiti properties.
