Fitzroy Loft by Architects EAT Melbourne

Melbourne based design practice Architects EAT were recently awarded Best Residential Interior at the Australian Interior Design Awards for this amazing loft conversion in a 125 year old former factory in Fitzroy, an inner city suburb of Melbourne. We love the soaring saw tooth ceiling as well as the fusion of respectfully preserved original features and the sleek new additions of steel, glass and timber, combining to create light filled open spaces as well as intimate zones on each level. The suspended foot bridge is an amazing addition connecting the mezzanine spaces. We love the soft grey kitchen and living space joinery paired beautifully with the marble finishes and the black steel framed glazing.

Design statement

Fitzroy Loft is a warehouse conversion inside the 125-year-old MacRobertson chocolate factory in Fitzroy, Victoria. The project is about bringing light and air deep into the home, while maintaining the integrity and context of its historical significance. Three internal voids are devised to highlight the original factory heights. While the brief called for a sizeable family home, keeping the integrity of the original factory’s bones was vital. Walls and floors that were built in more recent years were torn down to expose charred beams and remnant paint.

The interior is a series of spaces linked by three internal voids. The first void is the courtyard, which is directly connected to the main living room and the kitchen. The second void is located as a zoning device, separating the living spaces from the private zones on the lower floor. And the third void is placed at the very back in the library, displaying the original timber column and beam, and allowing the soft southern ambient light to touch the library and the mezzanine study above.
