Fitzroy – Diagonal House

Incorporating the heritage listed circa 1880 facade and original homestead, this extensive extension is a seamless blend of modern technology fused with historical significance. 5 bedrooms and a study, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen, as well as a courtyard, dining and living area, this extension comprised the highest quality environmentally sustainable materials resourced from all over the world.

South American spotted gum cladding combined with ironbark and black butt floors and hand crafted Italian tiles to create amazing visuals. Hand pitched roof sections on thirteen different roof pitches combine with the precise angles of the double glazed window panels to create a constant flow of light and shade ensuring every hour of every day playful patterns are cast through the dwelling.

The architect said:

“As the architect I worked directly with Kingcraft on this extensive alteration project and found the quality of work produced to be exemplary. They were clearly committed to making sure all work was completed to the clients satisfaction. Kingcraft’s administration of the project was clear and comprehensive. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”
