Architecture Design of Flemington House

Description About The Project

Flemington House is a1940s semi-detached brick home in Melbourne Australia, designed by Lisa Breeze Architect. Indeed, this home is a rare Melbourne property, having remained in the same family for 80 years. Therefore, maintaining its nostalgic feel and character was essential. Also, the owner interested in improving the home’s liveability and outdoor connections, but without eliminating the 1940s character.

The most challenging design aspect of this project was picking and choosing which heritage aspects to work with for inspiration, and which ones to let go of. It’s a fine line between honoring the past and creating a home that suits current times and into the future. The overall layout is a good example of this. A combined open Kitchen and Meals is counter to the way houses built and planned in the 1940s in Australia. As well as, sharing these spaces and connecting them to the outdoors is huge importance.

The existing building directed the design including the re-model and the extension. The Front Entry, Bedrooms and living room were maintained. At the rear of the Flemington House, the designer completely gutted the interior. Then, made this area slightly larger, relocated, rearranged and replaced the service rooms and opened the new kitchen and Meals area onto a freshly landscaped Backyard so that the open plan area is more suitable to contemporary standards.

In its long history the Flemington house had largely gone untouched, which meant many of its lovely old features were still intact.

Throughout the renovated rooms are several homages to the former design. It includes curved edges on the kitchen cabinetry; fluted glass; square ceramic bathroom tiles. And a circle window in the bathroom door matching the original front door of Flemington house.

Indeed, particular attention placed on the mint green kitchen cabinetry, which became the inspiration for the updated interior palette for the Flemington house.

Text by the Architects: This 1940s semi-detached brick home in Melbourne Australia treasured by the same family since it originally built. The current owner, the great grandnephew of the original owner, was keen to honor its heritage in as many ways as possible. In its long history the house had largely gone untouched, so many of its lovely old features were still intact. However, there comes a time with every home where an old Kitchen, and degrading Bathroom, need an overhaul to bring them up to contemporary living standards and to provide for a long life ahead.
