Archiblox’s ‘Richmond Extension’ provided a contemporary addition to a beautiful existing Edwardian house in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond. The home-owners, a young family of four, were looking to expand their home with further bedrooms and living spaces, but were also conscious of including appropriate weather insulation, high quality materials and energy efficient appliances throughout the home.
We were very pleased to provide a prefabricated solution for our clients, with the construction of 3 modules that were built in our Laverton facility, then transported and craned onto this narrow site in only a fraction of the time of a regular on-site build. With two children under the age of 5 at the time, this process suited the clients perfectly, as it meant less disruptions and time required away from their home. It was also less intrusive for the neighbouring properties, and eased congestion on the narrow street.
