Melbourne-based architecture firm Studio Bright (formerly MAKE Architecture) are completely attuned to the social and environmental fabric of their projects. So there was no better candidate to take on a narrow site of just 4.5 metres wide in inner-city Carlton, Melbourne – a ‘game of millimetres’.
Aptly named the Garden Wall House, Studio Bright designed two white brick walls to run at a constant height from the garden all the way through the interior of a heritage extension. Above a singular brick form balances; a ‘hit and miss’ brick veil that lets sun shoot through every opening from top to bottom. Mirroring the silhouette of the single-fronted Victorian, Studio Bright have packed a punch in a small footprint, fulfilling the client’s desire for a dynamic, leafy and light-filled refuge.
