Browne Street Renovation is yet another spectacular project by Preston Lane Architects. Taking advantage of hardwood joinery through dense and durable windows and doors built to coincide with cabinetry of the same species. One the clear advantages of using Tasmanian oak or Victorian ash is this ability to source materials for the entire project without compromising design flow. We talk with Preston Lane about Browne Street…
“The project was an exercise in maximising the potential of the rear of a 1920’s home” says Preston Lane. “The young family required more room and were in need of some usable outdoor play space for the kids to enjoy. A new addition on a podium provides greater solar gain, connections to the garden and commands the views of the city and beyond which were all previously underutilised. The project is defined by three key design gestures. The establishment of a new podium to the rear, crafting of a new ‘floating’ roof and the sleeving of the new into the old through the relocation of the heart of the home to the rear of the property”.
