Alterations & Additions | South Melbourne Home by Rob Ryan Projects

The Look

Local design studio Rob Ryan Projects overhaul a period South Melbourne Home to meet the needs of a whole new generation. Design Director Rob Ryan and his team were introduced to a quaint family home in South Melbourne, among a row of charming timber terraces. The owners and their two children didn’t want to move from their beloved home, but asked for a refurbishment that let the home work to their requirements and routine.

The brief called for additional space for the young clan and a connected series of reflective and open living areas that captured natural light and maximised connection to the outdoors. While the heritage requirements may have made this no walk in the park, they’ve revealed Rob Ryan Projects’ knack for bespoke and tailored design innovation, sympathetic to the old.
