New against old. Blocks of concrete and narrow recessed glass. Outward and in and the relationship between the two. Open plan extension to a Victorian era house where the new contrasts against the old. Internal walls of concrete are warmed by wood. It's a restrained palette of concrete, black aluminium, stainless steel and oak. Glebe House by Nobbs Radford Architects.

Encantador tu blog, la estética que la envuelve me convoca a verlo una y otravez. Desde que lo descubrí, es uno mis recreos diarios!

I don't get how this is an extension of a victorian house. Sometimes it's just bizarre how architects whip up something modern against something SO not.

Now, this is concrete at its finest. I love everything about this house. That reading nook looks beautiful.

Great concept and good execution. I just pity the poor neighbours to the left looking from the backyard back to the house. They're left facing a pretty ugly concrete wall just feet from their own windows.
