The Light Box

Project Overview

The Light Box is a Californian bungalow renovation located in an area of significant heritage inside the city of Darebin. Two differing architectural styles have been married to celebrate and enhance the dignified heritage of this original Californian bungalow in Northcote. The modern extension has enabled light to be captured from all directions at different points of the day.
