It is Corten steel that gives this Aussie home its exceptional appeal as it adds both color and textural beauty to the structure. The custom corten panels were designed by the architects to improve the fire safety of the house and to shield it from the harsher elements of the bushland.
High ceilings ensure that this stylish extension feels dramatic even while giving the homeowners a perfect place to hold parties and family gatherings with ease. Since the interior transitions seamlessly into the patio and the garden the ‘social zone’ feels even more spacious and refreshing!
When it comes to revamping old houses with a heritage façade and giving them a contemporary new makeover it is often the rear extension that comes to the rescue. The advantages of a smart modern extension that acts as an interface between the interior and the backyard go beyond the obvious. For starters this allows architects to work within existing building norms and to preserve the classic appeal of traditional homes without sacrificing on functionality.
Large oversized pendants above the dining table give a dash of industrial vibe to the dining area with empty corners being turned into the kids’ playarea with the simple use of a teepee. Comfortable bedrooms with attached bathrooms and ample closet room complete a stylish home that easily adapts to the various needs of its denizens.
The interior of the house has an understated polished look with the furniture bringing in some much needed color. A large kitchen area with a smart island and a breakfast zone is connected with the pool and deck outside using a series of floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors. With dining space on one side and a wonderful sunken living area on the other the lower level seems as private as it does open.
