North Fitzroy House

This North Fitzroy, Melbourne extension is unapologetically new. The original house is Edwardian era but the contemporary double height addition with an emphasis on glass allows the light to filter into the space, opening out and extending the spaces. (Love the ribbon of louvers that repeats around the house.) The loft bedroom looks down on kitchen, dining and living areas that focus on the rawness of the building materials to provide interest and stimulation. Unique, functional, elegantly spare. By AM. Architecture.

The house is designed very nicely no doubt, but I can't help but feel it needs more color and texture to appear a little more "lived in." Still a gorgeous house and some beautiful pictures :)

Yes the one artwork used in three spaces just doesn't cut it. Where is the character of this home?
