Stalking on a Saturday

A glimpse of a very contemporary addition to the side of the facade is a dead giveaway that this home in Melbourne's Fitzroy North is not what it seems from the street. I'm stalking an Edwardian era red brick home with a industrial modern extension. Love the play of the black steel against the brick and the monumental kitchen island with its rich green tiles and old timber beams. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking 1

A period home with a modern extension ... it's what Australian architects do so well. Oh and seamless indoor outdoor integration of course. I'm stalking a Queens Park, Sydney home with a cozy but funky front (the facade is a dead giveaway that something special lurks within) and a split-level extension featuring a spacious parents' retreat and a huge open-plan kitchen/dining/living zone with sliding glass walls. The design is by Fox Johnston Architects. Link here while it lasts.

High contrast

With its high contrast detail - a black and white palette and interesting play of texture, soft on hard texture, this Melbourne residence involved a renovation and extension to the double fronted Victorian on Winter Street in Malvern for two professionals and their growing family. The furniture includes a mix of designer furniture and lighting, eclectic collected vintage pieces and custom-made items designed by the designers B.E Architecture.

Stalking my dream home?

A Gothic Revival facade that dates from 1873, a modern extension by Austin Maynard Architects and an amazing garden. I think I might just have found my dream home. A few tweaks to the furniture and artwork and I'd move in in a heartbeat. Shame I'll never be able to afford it. Ah well that's what stalking is for! You'll find the link to this Northcote, Melbourne home here while it lasts.

P.S. You must watch the video. It shows you so much more of this wonderful house.

Not only do they look great but they help control temperature and light within the house. What am I talking about? Why the screens that clad this reworked extension to a heritage house in Melbourne by Wolveridge Architects.A contemporary extension with heritage overlays. It's what Australian architects excel at.
