Union Street aka Brunswick brick special

split brick facade

steel and timber handrail

After deciding to retain the existing somewhat challenging dwelling, we tried to engage with the history of 70’s owner build bricklayer’s house. The new addition embraces a brick aesthetic with a split faced brick rear entry replete with brick floor. The uniform ceiling height of the original fat plan is increased by dropping the floor level to the new works, linked by steps and a ramp. Steel columns hold up a steel and timber handrail, the construction of which tortured all involved.

Excellent work by Dwyer Constructions, with some fine joinery from DE Design Excellence.
