A Suspended Bridge Connects the Victorian Terrace with the New Mews-Inspired Extension

Victorian Terraces are notorious for being dark, cramped and lacking natural ventilation, the complete opposite of what we seek today. So Matt Gibson Architecture & Design was tasked with reimagining this typical two-storey Victorian Terrace in Fitzroy for a couple who wished it to be their family home.

Two courtyards were designed for the long narrow site to get as much natural light and fresh air as possible. A glass-floor bridge suspended over the central courtyard connects the two upper levels while saving space on stairs. Designed as three self-similar mews-like buildings, the new extension reads as one structure, utilising reclaimed bricks painted white for texture and a connection to the home’s history.
