#kingbill King Bill is a love letter to Fitzroy. King Bill is a collage of Fitzroy’s built history, its textures, its forms, its order and its chaos.
A family of four, long time Fitzroy locals, asked Austin Maynard Architects to design them their “forever house” in the suburb they love. They asked for a renovation to their two story terrace home, incorporating the empty site to the east and re-using the old stable building at the rear. At King Bill we set out to completely re-think the terrace house and the principles that created them. We looked at the house as empty spaces that needed new purpose. Holes have been punched through the boundary wall. A glazed, curved corridor now forms the entrance linking the brick terrace with the steel clad stable (garage, study, parents retreat) and the new glass pavilion (kitchen, living/ dining) surrounded by established garden.
