South Yarra House by Lande Architects

In a tightly controlled heritage precinct of South Yarra, this single-fronted Victorian Terrace from 1895, the South Yarra House by Lande Architects, was in desperate need of reinvigoration. With access to light a key driver, the design process was focused on delivering a bright and airy home. The non-original parts of the house were removed, and replaced with a light & bright extension with large East and North facing glazing, drenching the living spaces in natural light.
These living spaces open out to a rear yard, which brings the outside in, and the inside out.  The unique ‘hamlet’ of the precinct has influenced unexpected green pockets throughout the home. Courtyards and green roofs ensure that each room looks out onto at least one green space. This ensures that the home remains light and airy all year round. The house was recently shortlisted in the 2021 Houses Awards, Alterations and Additions under the 200m2 category.
