This Compact Heritage Home Among the Leaves Has Been Transformed

Located on a leafy street in Melbourne’s Middle Park sits a heritage home, with an awkward layout that didn’t work. Architects Rob and Kate of McMahon and Nerlich transformed the home, adding a little bit more floor area (within heritage controls), as well as a roof deck.

The interiors have been kept simple, with timbers, concrete and contrasting blacks as the main palette. The kitchen reads as a visual statement, with the black island bench and splashback, timber joinery and the powder room to one side, and the stairs on the other.
