This semi-detached house just outside Melbourne, Australia, not too long ago received a contemporary extension to meet the needs of the owners. Regardless of organizing restraints (which really don’;t permit 2-degree buildings), the architects at Jost Architects were in a position to deliver the clients’ requests.
The Malvern House addition includes a master bedroom with en-suite bath and stroll-in closet, second bedroom, workplace, bathroom, laundry room, kitchen with stroll-in pantry, and a spacious open-prepare residing and dining spot. Principal Patrick Jost described it as “business at the front and get together at the back.”
“One item that was critical was the view to the back backyard,” Jost said. “The program is traditional, with rooms available from a central corridor major into the rear dining and living region, where the ceiling rakes up to a considerable h7”
Sliding doors attain an optimum connection with the wooden deck and inner courtyard. The minimalist style strategy is softened by colorful accents and graphic ar2rk. A selection of finishes and textures also draws attention.
The home’s sustainable characteristics consist of engineered wood flooring, thermally modified wood siding, zoned hydronic heating, and double-glazed steel windows and sliding doors. [Photography courtesy of Patrick Jost]
