Cydelia House is a pair of three-storey Victorian terrace houses donated by the Cybec Foundation and managed by The University of Melbourne. A long-term client of the university, Harris HMC was contracted to complete a major refurbishment to these premises to create student accommodation.

Our role was to provide external restoration remaining faithful to the building’s original architecture and internal refurbishment of the entire building. This complex scope of works involved the following:

  • Refurbishment of existing external façade
  • Complete refurbishment of interior including demolition of existing rooms to create new bedrooms and bathrooms to the upper levels and communal areas on the ground floor
  • Removal of hazardous materials, contaminated soil and lead paint to existing walls
