The architect was the architect of the house, which he completed for $2.2 million in 2013.
The architect’s work, he told Fairfax Media, had been influenced by the design of the original house and its neighbours, such as the nearby Lighthouse House.
“I was just trying to push the envelope and push the boundaries of what’s possible with an interior,” he said.
The project was one of five planned in a year-long master plan that included the installation of a community garden, a community swimming pool and a community centre.
He said he wanted to bring the house back to the “natural” state that it had been in when he was born in 1928.
“The house is still standing,” he told the ABC.
“It’s just that it’s not the same.”
The architect said his inspiration for the project was a Victorian house that was “taken over by the public”.
“It was designed by a gentleman, Edward Whitehouse, who died in 1913,” he explained.
The project’s site was chosen to create a natural environment for the garden and pool, as well as the community centre and public art space. “
And the house was built as a house.”

The original house, however, was not used.
“My aim was to do something a little bit unique,” he added.
The original home was removed from public view and the community garden was built on a site with no access to the street. “
Our aim is to take a house and really put it back in its natural state, as opposed to the typical Victorian style where it’s taken over by modernism.”
The original home was removed from public view and the community garden was built on a site with no access to the street.
However, the original home’s owners, the Victorian Government, allowed the community pool to be developed as a public swimming pool.
“That was part of the process of restoring the house to its natural, beautiful state,” he concluded.
“There was a lot of work done to make sure it’s preserved.”
The new design was completed in March this year.
It includes a community pool, a swimming pool, public art spaces and a cafe.
A community garden is planned in the main garden.
The house is currently on the market for $3.5 million.
