Located on a highly desirable street two blocks from the beach in the Melbourne suburb of St. Kilda is this zincalume clad extension grafted to an Edwardian home in a dramatic yet
sensitive fashion.  Old is tied to new, modern meets traditional. Bi-fold doors ensure a seamless flow from indoors to outdoors. It’s about bright sunlit spaces shaded by seasonal vines, strategically planted deciduous trees and overhangs. Think high end finishes with durability as the key and all on a tight budget.  Even the clothesline was given the designer twist, with a rock weight/peg holder adding a bit of flair to a typically ordinary domestic object. Another stunning project by Marcus O’Reilly Architects.

Fabulous home, but I love the clothesline more.

Fantastic! I wouldn’t look any further if I was on a house hunt. Love the post. Thanks for sharing.
BTW I have left a little something for you on my blog today.
Have a great day!
Take good care,
