McMahon and Nerlich wins 2023 TIDA Australia Architect Home of the Year

Congratulations to McMahon and Nerlich, winner of the TIDA Australia Architect Home of the Year with a renovation that integrates old and new

Take a slideshow tour through this award-winning home by McMahon and Nerlich

In this renovation, a red-brick and terracotta roofed Edwardian home has been radically transformed into one of light and renewed spatial flow.

The original home had badly deteriorated, and had a layout from a time that ignored solar orientation and connections to the outdoors, resulting in a dark damp interior.

The renovation not only floods natural light into the addition, but reworks the original heritage structure, introducing light and garden views into the heart of the home, and improving thermal mass.

At the front, the home has been reconfigured to accommodate the master suite and other facilities.

Behind this, the two-storey addition is separated from the heritage front rooms with a glazed link, giving a clear gap between old and new.

Clad in grey fibre cement compressed sheet, the L-shaped addition establishes a flowing indoor-outdoor connection to the north- facing garden.

Inside the new structure, the steel posts and beams have been clad with timber, adding to the warm ambiance of the timber-lined ceiling, kitchen cabinetry, staircase and furnishing.

The children's bedrooms are located on the second floor of the addition, at the opposite end of the home giving privacy to the master suite, while tucked into the linking space between old and new on both levels is an acoustically-separated study – one for each owner.

The TIDA  judges felt that this project exhibited a highly considered approach to the treatment and integration of the old and new elements, creating a modest yet distinctive home on a strict budget.
