Australian-based studio Clare Cousins Architects designed the extension of the Brick House located on a long and narrow site in Prahran.
The project is a single storey addition of an existing Edwardian house which called for a private central courtyard space from the neighboring homes.
Brick House by Clare Cousins Architects:
Designed for a young family the house caters for their needs now and in the future. A flexible space, referred to as the studio, is housed on top of the new garage forming a double story mass at the rear of the site to help screen large neighbouring buildings. The single story addition to the house engages with the garden with its meandering facade of glass and brick.
