With a great respect for the historic architecture, the Elfort Road House offers a roof and side extension to transform a Victorian terraced home. The original layout of the interior was tight and confined. By removing partitions and a second-story bedroom, the new living area now boasts an open, double-height plan. Oak flooring and timber-framed windows were installed throughout to maintain a timeless unity while plywood joinery and patterned bathroom tiles provide contemporary touches. On the exterior, the zinc-clad extensions take on the hue of neighboring tiled roofs — a complement to both the existing brick facade and the neighborhood aesthetic.
