South Yarra

Project Description

When this South Yarra Terrace project first came into our office the renovation was for a young professional, the house was tiny, in disrepair, dark with almost no outdoor area. The brief was fairly typical; maximise floor area, increase amount of natural light, increase storage options, open plan living area to the rear facing courtyard, 2 bedrooms + study / flexi space, new second storey.

The complexity was not only fitting all this in and more (brief included an off-street car space!) in such a small space, but managing issues of limited access, shared party wall + roof with the neighbour and a house that was in near original condition – bluestone foundations and all.


A detailed proposal from the start outlined workflow, stages, outputs and costs and all was delivered exactly as communicated and consistently at all times. I’m incredibly appreciative of Peita’s talent, design skills and quality of project input, management and support throughout the build.
