This semi-detached house just outside Melbourne, Australia, just lately received a modern extension to meet the needs of the owners. Regardless of planning restraints (which really don’;t let 2-level buildings), the architects at Jost Architects were capable to deliver the clients’ requests.
The Malvern Property addition includes a master bedroom with en-suite bath and stroll-in closet, 2nd bedroom, office, bathroom, laundry space, kitchen with walk-in pantry, and a spacious open-plan residing and dining spot. Principal Patrick Jost described it as “business at the front and party at the back.”
“One item that was imperative was the view to the back backyard,” Jost said. “The strategy is conventional, with rooms available from a central corridor major into the rear dining and residing location, in which the ceiling rakes up to a considerable h7”
Sliding doors attain an optimum connection with the wooden deck and inner courtyard. The minimalist style technique is softened by colorful accents and graphic ar2rk. A range of finishes and textures also draws consideration.
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]
