SPRING ‘SLICE’ ARTICLE FEATURING CCA – AIA VICTORIA MAGAZINE
Cathi Colla Architects were recently featured in Spring Slice, the Australian Institute of Architects’ Victoria Magazine.
“The delight of this transformation is the extent of northern light now entering the living space” in Cathi Colla Architects’ recent renovation the “Micro Addition”.
Quote from ‘Slice’ Architect Victoria, Spring Issue, Australian Institute of Architects, Victorian Chapter publication.
The full excerpt reads:
“This modest single room extension adds a light-filled open-plan arrangement to a previously dark and compact home. The existing double-fronted house is squeezed onto a narrow site of just seven metres. The site is east-west facing with a two-storey house on the northern side.
New construction adds five square metres with the new footprint being 91 square metres and the old 86 square metres. The construction budget was extremely modest. The addition is limited to the living area, deck and outdoor store. All other areas of the extension adapt the existing dark, cellular arrangement to become a liberated layout improving functionality and outlook.
The delight of this transformation is the extent of northern light now entering the living space and the connection between the living areas and outdoors, including the functionality of the kitchen, bathroom and laundry, and the flow of circulation through the spaces.”
