The project explores the idea of what a Brunswick worker’s cottage is and the lifestyle that it can offer a growing family.
The central location, connection to parks, and acceptance that in Inner Melbourne it’s okay to not have a big backyard were guiding factors.
Allan Street house transforms the experience of a pokey terrace house into a home that is light and open, sustainably designed and adaptable to the daily routines of a young family.
