EmAGN This: House Peach

House Peach is an extension to a delightful cottage in Coburg, currently under construction by Cathedral Homes. The new double storey extension finds joy in all the usual problems faced by tightly constrained extension projects and is due for completion mid 2020. Take a tour with the Architect, Builder and Client. Tour a house in the early stages of construction for a behind the scenes look at merging old with new. Chat with the builder, architect and learn about the client’s experience on this tour.

Architect: Swain & Fraser
Structural Engineer: Meyer Consulting
Builder: Cathedral Homes


Running for its second year, this exciting initiative of the Australian Institute of Architects’ Emerging Architects & Graduates (EmAGN) and Open House Melbourne, is a genuine once-in-a lifetime chance to see unique architect-designed homes under construction. You will share a moment in the life of each home, before it is completed. The program features hard-hat tours of residential homes under construction. Hear from award winning architects and builders as they discuss the challenges of designing and constructing contemporary residential architecture in Melbourne.
