We are excited to bring you episode one of our new series, 10x3. We will be following the journey of Sandi and Tim as they design and build their own project on a tiny 30m2 block of land in Fitzroy North.

In the first episode, Sandi introduces us to their tiny site, how she found a 30m2 block of land and what might come of it.

Watch the full episode on our YouTube channel or website, linked in bio.

The heavy brick facade of Harold Street by @nestarchi gets broken down with the use of windows and timber, acting as both eaves and outdoor seating.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Internally the timber joinery has been designed simply, with excessive detailing stripped away. This simplicity allows the joinery to just sit in the space and act as a backdrop for the clients' lives.⁠⠀

Home goals?⁠⠀

Harold Street by @nestarchi is an extension to a fairly typical inner-suburban home with no tricks or gimmicks. In order to achieve a timeless look, simple materials were chosen. Bricks were painted white and timber lined the ceilings and floors.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What do you think of the interiors?⁠⠀

Tamarama House by @porebskiarchitects was designed to be experienced outdoors just as much indoors. The L-shape plan wraps around a central courtyard, which orientates to the sun but is protected from the sea breezes. A large covered terrace connects to the upper living, creating the perfect backdrop for cocktail parties. Finally, a courtyard and pool on the ground level flows with the lower play area.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Bathroom goals anyone?⁠⠀

This references the traditional weatherboards on the existing home, ⁠which carries on internally with timber used sparingly.⁠⠀

Constructed off-site in Hobart, The Retreat by @jawsarchitects was transported to site and craned into place. This helped to minimise disturbance to the site, reduce construction time and allowed for a high-quality finish.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Located at the end of a narrow private pathway, The Retreat is seen as a rather closed-off timber-clad pavilion. Once you go under to enter, you then walk up the stairs to a light-filled room with windows that focus on the surrounding bushland.⁠⠀

Who else is completely in love?⁠⠀

The form of Unfurled House by @christopherpollyarchitect responds to the existing Federation home and neighbours. Wanting to reduce the impact on the neighbours to the south, the two-storey extension adjusts its massing accordingly. The home 'unfurls' to the rear, providing little moments of delight through a daybed nook and a connection to the backyard.⁠⠀

Who else is wondering when they can move in?⁠⠀

Clifton Hill Terraces by @fieldoffice.arch employed a range of sustainability approaches, including using a reverse brick veneer for better thermal mass, cross ventilation, off-grid power supply as well as recycling bricks from previously occupied dwellings.

Clifton Hill Terraces by @fieldoffice.arch were designed for a couple in their 60s, wanting two highly-sustainable "eco-townhouses". One would be for them in retirement, and the other for close friends and family.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ "The self-sufficiency of the homes provides the opportunity to consume next to no resources from the grid. The dwellings are powered purely by electricity (no gas). Solar panels with 13.68KW battery for full supply of both dwellings (60% goes back to the grid)."⁠⠀ – Field Office Architecture⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ All the awesome sustainability aside, how good would it be to curl up here with a book?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Photographed by @danfarrarphotographer⁠⠀ Built by @sustainablehomesmelbourne⁠⠀ ⁠⁠⠀ #TheDesignEmotive⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Published with @bowerbird.io
