King Bill by Austin Maynard Architects Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations and Additions): National Commendation Australian Institute of Architects

Jury citation

Eclectic and playful in its execution, King Bill by Austin Maynard Architects is designed to reflect the pocket parks in the surrounding backstreets of Melbourne’s Fitzroy. The project opens up and extends an 1850s terrace house into the adjoining vacant block in an unexpected and delightful way, with landscaped courtyards by Bush Projects threaded throughout the home. A generous, civic-minded approach to place is evident in the design of this alteration and addition and the non-uniform and textural approach to the architecture responds to the layered, gritty nature of Melbourne’s inner north. Austin Maynard Architects’ unconventional response to the common downfalls of heritage terrace houses is commended.
