Renovated exterior of a 1850s prefab cottage in Melbourne

The colorful new front façade is clad in recycled sugar pine boards salvaged from the original house. The limited lot size meant that the team had to build boundary to boundary, almost directly up to the sidewalk. Like the rest of the home, the exterior balances history and restoration, offering a “controlled contrast” of color and texture. The result is a unique family home that is both bold and whimsical in design, and sensible in function.
