Altereco

This extension to an old weatherboard home in Northcote, Melbourne is good design, plain and simple. The repetitive use of timber boxes gives a clean lined and contemporary feel while the retention of heritage features does not detract from this modern family home. Light filled, open, blending old and new. Who would know what is hiding behind the old facade? Stompbox by Melbourne based building designers Altereco

I started out loving the kitchen, because at least it isn't the current trend of dark against white and the horizontally laid planks are funky.

But as more and more examples of those same timber highlights were revealed it just became too much, culminating in the bedroom feature wall. To me, a feature wall only pops when it is a contrast.

Plus I have grave doubts about how well this retro-sauna style will age.

Sad to say, it reminds me of what one of the couples on the Block are doing... timber timber everywhere.

But the kitchen by itself is still very cool.

Really stunning! The wood work is amazing and it all feels so sophisticated but practical at the same time. A good palce to call home ;)
