The only particular client requirement was to find a place in the design for three tapestries of houses that her mother had made.

The site is a single storey terrace on a small 5m wide block in the inner city of Melbourne.

The brief was to create new Living and Dining spaces, relocate the existing kitchen and bathrooms and improve access to natural light in the main living and main bedroom areas.

The existing Victorian eastern end of the house containing 2 bedrooms was to remain and be refurbished.
