Edition Office has redesigned and extended the Mary Street House in St Kilda West, Australia.
Mary Street House is the reimagining of a well-worn Federation-era home.
Softly finished recycled-brick walls shape the new social spaces of the house, creating a sequence of indoor and outdoor rooms within the boundaries of the site.
The continuous motif of the undulating brick wall continues around the house to form the protective side fence that shelters the home from active street life – while extending around and lovingly embracing the side of the original heritage home.
In addition, two brick volumes rest upon the roof of the new wing housing the sanctuary spaces of the studio and the principal bedroom.
