This modern extension to an Edwardian era house has resulted in something very special. Think contemporary sculpture meets colour blocking, new connections between inside and out and restraint versus drama. The Oak House (named for the mature oak that dominates the site) by Melbourne based Kennedy Nolan.

From the board formed concrete walls and the concrete encaustic tiles to the simple plywood cabinets topped with sleek and seamless stainless steel counters this kitchen by Taylor + Taylor is a stylish example of contemporary rustic. Rough against smooth, complex pattern against plain this small but well designed kitchen is definitely not your run of the mill, ho-hum heart of the house. The designers are favourites of mine. You can see the kitchen that gave me the blues here.

It should be obvious to you dear reader that my house drug of choice is the Victorian terrace. Yes, yes I know that they are narrow and dark and a lot of times are screaming out for a sympathetic modernisation but I can’t help it. I’m hooked. I’ve been real estate
strolling scrolling and I’d like to get my grubby little fingers on this one. Great job so far and lots of potential for even more improvements. For sale here while the link lasts.
