Clever custom joinery in this McMahon’s Point, Sydney renovation and extension by architects Stanic Harding. A California Bungalow style home was given a modern take while retaining period features like the bay windows. The new addition respects the street appeal while not hiding its existence or pretending to be what it is not. A change of level in the small backyard provides an opportunity for decking and seating that will soften over time.
I love this house! Everything about it, really. The shot of the back of the house at dusk made me gasp — gorgeous! Looking at the front, one would never guess the inside and the back are so modern. Thanks for sharing this.
The lourved splash-back in the kitchen = genious!
Yep, the kitchen does it for me, too. That lovely line of windows. And the long cabinet with the gorgeous wood.
Beautiful artwork on the walls
Got to wonder if the initial "oh!" factor of seeing these 2 very different exteriors welded together would get old, and dare I say it, unattractive after a while. It certainly looks nice being showcased this way, but I admittedly was looking through the pictures without reading the description, and found myself wondering what the heck I was looking at when it came to the exterior shots.
um, sorry but that awful white elephant in the room is still there and very very visible whether the tv disappears into it or not
Downlights: boo. No more gorgeous Cali Bungalow ceiling roses: boo. No crown mouldings: boo. Looks like a new-build hotel in there to me and I find it a bit depressing, frankly. All the gorgeous period details can never really be replaced, only imitated. I don't understand why people do this, frankly.
There are some many thing I like: the TV capinet is very sleek, the single row kitchen to die for, outdoor "concrete look" is great!
