The King Bill Home Embraces the Old and the New
A clever ode to it’s Fitzroy locale.
Austin Maynard Architects recently unveiled its community inspired King Bill home located in the eclectic suburb of Fitzroy, Australia.
After consolidating the separate lots into a single title, the homeowners of the King Bill property wanted to avoid creating an eyesore by over-expanding the space, deciding to renovate the 18th century terrace house in a manner that still accentuated the garden for the community to enjoy.
The garden area now houses a glass pavilion that incorporates a kitchen, living, and dining areas. A long corridor connects the original house to the newly designed pavilion as well as the stable, used as a garage and a guesthouse retreat. Austin Maynard Architects wanted to accentuate both old and new aspects of the space through the contrasting use of the old red brick and the new corrugated steel that cover the new pavilion and stable.
