Open House

VFA Architecture Design as Architects

Guided by a desire for openness, this intensive renovation took a formerly dark and introverted Victorian residence and transformed it into a modern home exemplifying contemporary notions of daylighting and indoor-outdoor living – all without losing its century old charm.

 

An atrium space centrally located allows natural light to flood into the middle of the long narrow house, a space that is typically dark.

 

Careful modern insertions into the front facade respect the century old brick work and structure yet give it a facelift to bring it in line with this day's aesthetics.
