The Burke Road Sun Room

Winner Heritage Conservation Project – Residential

Designer: Ardent Architects Pty Ltd
Builder: Chippa Constructions
Photographer: Pam Morris, Spectral Modes
Location: Camberwell, VIC

A well-developed new additional space which does not jar with the existing heritage building. The judges commented on the warmth of the design. Not a clashing modern take on a heritage extension, but one that works in symbiosis with the existing house. There are hidden hints at the present day with items such as high performance windows and hidden laptop power. Colour use was also a winner in this design, with warmth resulting from the bold colour choices. A well thought-out design blending the past with the future use of the house.
