At the base of the Albert Park House is an inner-city heritage home. The original structure's historic details were thoughtfully restored while the layout was modernized with a new open design. At the rear, is a timber-clad extension. Although remaining neutral, the palette slightly evolves as you enter the new addition, meshing the old with the new. The addition adds a second story for bedrooms accessed by a cranked staircase. Below, a kitchen and dining room expands to an outdoor terrace, affording views of the outdoor garden.
