This semi-detached house just outside Melbourne, Australia, not too long ago received a modern extension to meet the needs of the owners. In spite of organizing restraints (which don’t enable 2-level buildings), the architects at Jost Architects were ready to provide the clients’ requests.
The Malvern Property addition includes a master bedroom with en-suite bath and walk-in closet, second bedroom, workplace, bathroom, laundry room, kitchen with walk-in pantry, and a spacious open-program living and dining spot. Principal Patrick Jost described it as “business at the front and get together at the back.”
“One item that was essential was the view to the back garden,” Jost said. “The program is classic, with rooms available from a central corridor top into the rear dining and residing area, exactly where the ceiling rakes up to a substantial h7”
Sliding doors achieve an optimum connection with the wooden deck and inner courtyard. The minimalist design method is softened by colorful accents and graphic ar2rk. A variety of finishes and textures also draws focus.
The home’s sustainable functions include engineered wood flooring, thermally modified wood siding, zoned hydronic heating, and double-glazed steel windows and sliding doors. [Photography courtesy of Patrick Jost]
