Deco House

Joint Winner Residential Design – Alterations & Additions: $200K-$500K

Designer: Glow Design Group Builder: Fulham & Chelsea Building Services
Photographer: Elizabeth Schiavello Photography Location: Footscray, VIC

Clearly displaying a considered and respectful approach to the original heritage fabric, the deco house utilised minimal funds to achieve great results. The minimal intervention of the existing art deco home creates a completely new and functional spatial arrangement that cleverly marries detailing of old and new. The living spaces were redesigned to suit the family, and add features to make the house more relevant for the future, particularly in its environmental efficiency aspects. The end result is a house that respects its heritage yet works for the family, giving them a space to entertain and enjoy.
