Stalking a jungalow bungalow

Oooooh did I just type that as a post title? It's true though. A light filled, modern extension to this early 1900's house is the perfect spot for indulging in a little plant lovin'. Great family home! I'm stalking in the inner-city Sydney suburb of Kensington. Link here while it lasts.

P.S. The video shows the house off better than the pictures IMO.

Mid Mod Mojo

It was a 1960s house that was too small for its family. They loved their home but they needed more room. Nothing huge and definitely not something that ignored its mid century bones. Enter Melbourne-based Nest Architects. The house grew to meet the family's needs, kept its mid mod mojo and everyone lived happily ever after.

In-Between Room

"Additions reflect upon the lives of both the inhabitants and the houses themselves. The in-between room is a small, celebrated addition at the rear of an existing Queenslander, one which binds and redefines an existing detached two level tower and claims the interstitial space as its own.

This new room is designed as a counterpoint to the interiors present in the original house. An 'exploded space' which recognises the external walls of both house and tower as its positive edges and treats the remaining elevations as transparencies. A threshold territory engaged with the landscape, accessing the long distant views. The internal belly of the folded plywood ceiling follows the geometry of the frame, drawing the eyes up in an unobserved chapel effect. The grounded concrete slab alludes to the notion of an external courtyard, indeed the in-between room has been designed as an ambiguous space considered more natural when opened than closed."

Exciting new Australian architecture that explores the sense of place and space as well as the interaction between occupants and building. In-Between Room by Brisbane-based Phorm architecture + design.

A modern addition to a deco home

A modern addition to an Art Deco home by Folk Architects has been brought to life by Sydney-based design studio Amber Road. What could have read as disparate spaces now references deco elements through colour, texture and a bespoke light fitting in the entrance. A thoroughly stylish family home.

Stalking a mullet

What's that saying about a mullet hair cut? All business up the front and party out the back. I'm stalking a charming old house in Elsternwick, Melbourne with a thoroughly modern extension. I love how the original facade maintains the existing streetscape but the family can express their design personality loud and proud just behind. Link here while it lasts.
