Corsair House

Richmond is one of the most eclectic suburbs in Melbourne, and Corsair Street is a standout. Housing typologies span the decades, from Victorian workers cottages to seedy brick 80’s townhouses & contemporary rendered shoeboxes. Each home looks like an island of style all on its own, much like a corsair landing amidst friends.

The empty site was opposite a double storey brick factory, so we borrowed the materiality from there and grappled with the roof lines of the properties either side. Fly in, fly out. Our client doesn’t stay home much – a party animal, if you will. A dear friend.
