The presence of this ply clad addition saves space helps in better organization of the rest of the house and also delineates the kids’ playroom from the living area without the use of additional walls.
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.
Melbourne seems to be an absolute hotbed for home renovation projects in recent times and today we have another smart and sensible home makeover from the Fitzroy North suburb of the bustling city. Originally built as a modest workers cottage in the 1980s this abode was given a modern upgrade to meet the needs of a young family.
Crafted using timber and recycled brickwork the extension is both aesthetic and eco-friendly and further gives the home energy-saving attributes thanks to the passive heating and cooling techniques.
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.
