Fitzroy Residence with Victorian charm by Carr Architecture


Melbourne-based architectural practice, Carr Architecture, has designed the Fitzroy Residence project. Completed in 2014, this elegant two-storey home is located in Melbourne, Australia.

According to the architects: “The renovation of this two-storey terrace provides a series of flexible, contemporary spaces without losing the elegance of the original home. Situated in the heart of Fitzroy, the double-story Victorian is defined by its ornate, idyllic heritage-listed facade. The clients loved the character and charm of the Victorian house and were keen to retain as much of the existing period architecture as possible.


“To achieve this, the new ground floor was projected past the existing first floor, defining a new architectural expression. But unlike many renovations of this kind, the extension is not conspicuous. Instead it’s an elegant and robust form which takes into consideration its industrial neighbourhood context.”

The interior design of this home is stylish, simple and luxurious.
