This project was the demolition of an existing 1960s concrete housing commission home in Chadstone. The brief was to create a family home that incorporated four bedrooms, three living spaces, 3.5 bathrooms, an open planned family room leading out to an outdoor deck, and a double lock up garage.
The main challenges of this project were to create generous living spaces, all with access to good natural light. One of the ways this was done was with a central void with skylights above, that brought light into the centre of the house, the hallways and the rooms connecting to it. It also created a double height void that can be used as a thermal chimney effect on hot days.
