Now you see it now you don’t

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.



Johanna says:

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!

Claudia says:

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!

Oregonbird says:

Yep, the kitchen does it for me, too. That lovely line of windows. And the long cabinet with the gorgeous wood.

Kalinda says:

Beautiful artwork on the walls

makeda says:

the incredibles!

Griffin says:

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.

steve mawson says:

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

alice says:

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.
