I’m stalking another clever extension to an older house this time in Randwick, Sydney. With not much backyard left after extending the living spaces the new design opens to the cleverly laid out garden area. The hero piece of this small garden is the pool with its cool glass wall. Equally the stacking glass walls are a stand out allowing a seamless flow from lounging inside to alfresco dining and there is even a small patch of grass (for dog or child or mower freak). Talk about packing it all in! Link here while it lasts.
The art an deco is a bold statement – I wish even a whisper of that statement had made it into the kitchen. I've no doubt that it's all be taken into consideration, but I have to admit I'd have gone for concrete over glass, given earthquake propensities. The insurance must be a bear!
Very nice relaxed modern australian home. Very sydney.
Also earthquakes? They would not be a consideration in sydney/australia. As we never have any of note. So we get to be indulgent I guess.

Love this but what happens if the pool springs a leak? Yikes! That said, coolest thing ever with that clear glass piece and how they squeezed it all in. Love it!
