This semi-detached house just outside Melbourne, Australia, not too long ago received a contemporary extension to meet the needs of the owners. In spite of planning restraints (which do not let 2-degree buildings), the architects at Jost Architects were in a position to supply the clients’ requests.

The Malvern Property addition includes a master bedroom with en-suite bath and walk-in closet, second bedroom, workplace, bathroom, laundry area, kitchen with walk-in pantry, and a spacious open-strategy living and dining area. Principal Patrick Jost described it as “business at the front and party at the back.”

“One item that was critical was the see to the back garden,” Jost said. “The strategy is conventional, with rooms accessible from a central corridor top into the rear dining and residing location, the place the ceiling rakes up to a significant h7”

Sliding doors achieve an optimum connection with the wooden deck and inner courtyard. The minimalist layout method is softened by colorful accents and graphic ar2rk. A selection of finishes and textures also draws attention.

The home’s sustainable features include engineered wood flooring, thermally modified wood siding, zoned hydronic heating, and double-glazed steel windows and sliding doors. [Photography courtesy of Patrick Jost]
