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.
With relaxing contemporary bedrooms and spa-styled bathrooms it is white and gray that define the color palette inside this exquisite Californian home. A vegetable garden and smart home workspaces complete a transformation that is both innovative and enduring.

A metallic mesh frame creates the other half of the edifice and provides the perfect balance between privacy and controlled ventilation. On the inside the living space is simple unassuming and a neutral color palette ensures that the focus remains firmly on the landscape that sits outside.
