The pavilion-style design of the living area gives the interior a breezy and cheerful appeal and creates flowing social zones and party areas that bring together friends and family. It is the lower levels that contain the living space kitchen and dining room while the upper zones house the bedrooms and private areas.
Nestled in the lovely suburb of this Aussie home was in urgent need of one such magic makeover. The task fell to Simon Whibley Architecture & Antarctica who employed a unique and ingenious timber structure to give the home a fresh contemporary overhaul.
This is a home design trend that is on the up and up with most homeowners wanting an extension that acts as a transition zone between the existing main structure and the open courtyard or patio. Crafted by Schulberg Demkiw Architects the transformed Aussie residence relies on a sense of openness and interlinked spaces to fashion the perfect family home.
The extensive use of glass doors for the new addition means that the parents can always keep an eye on the kids from almost every room in the house and even when they are out on the deck.
The new interior features trademark gables and sweeping arches that give the interior a more spacious appeal and usher in a classic architectural allure. Along with the gables large windows make their presence felt as they offer better views of the scenic landscape around the cottage.
A contemporary extension that expands the living space of your traditional home and gives it a modern makeover is often the best way to alter your existing house to suit the needs of a growing family. Located in the vibrant suburb of Sandringham in New Zealand this cottage is the home of renowned Melbourne pub owner and his family with two children.
The living area also contains the kitchen and dining room with two bedrooms four bathrooms and a balcony with infinity pool completing the lavish getaway. But this is a residence that is more about its architectural brilliance than just extravagant space!
