The small Victorian house was in need of a contemporary upgrade and this came in the form of a breezy rear addition that now contains the new kitchen dining area storage space and bathroom. Relying on a neutral color scheme that is anchored in white and ample natural light the stylish extension flows into the small garden outside.
This effect is even more profound in case of natural light and the in is a perfect example of how creative design can usher in sunlight into the most improbable places! Designed by Ben Callery Architects the rear extension of this narrow brick house in Melbourne relies on a roof that curves towards the sky to fill its living area with sunlight.
But there comes a time when the basic bones of a house are no longer reusable and an entirely new edifice is the best options. Facing a similar situation Kennedy Nolan created this beautiful even while cleverly combining it aesthetically with its more Edwardian neighborhood! The combination between elegant modern aesthetics and the traditional silhouette feels both whimsical and organic.
The color white’s biggest blessing is the fact that it makes all the other colors stand out. If you really want the colorfulness of your house to be seen from miles away a white picket fence is a sure-fire way to do so! Since picket fences draw much attention to themselves with their classy look they also draw much attention to your front yard. Make the best of it by creating a blooming yard!
It is the rear extension though that steals the show with its bright and beautiful demeanor that acts as a bridge between classic and contemporary styles. Frameless glazing oak and brick shape the new addition that now contains the kitchen and dining space.
If you find us constantly harping on the importance of lighting and natural ventilation while planning for a home then it is for good reason. Lighting can make or break the appeal of an interior and can transform a dark dingy and unlivable space into a modern cheerful setting.
Adding to the intrigue and the visual splendor of this modern home is the Brise soleil that keeps away hot tropical sun and creates beautiful walkways that are still lit ever so beautifully by natural light.
