This three storey urban residence utilizes the existing shell of its former incarnation as a medical centre. Internally a timber ‘box’ sits within the original volume, containing a wine cellar and bathroom at ground level and mezzanine living space above. A large garage workshop and two bedrooms are also located on the lower level, connected to the kitchen meals and adjacent outdoor terrace via a ‘folded’ timber stair. Also on the first floor, the study commands an internal view over the entry space, as well as the street below via a deep bay window seat. A discrete third level accommodates the master domain, which enjoys postcard views of Melbourne landmarks.
