February 28, 2019
The following is the remodeling project of the Australian architecture studio, Jonathan Lake Architects. The team of architects remodeled the heritage-listed house in Maylands, Australia and was completed in 2010. This renovation extensions create a new timber with steel framed openings, adds a sense of contemporary design to the existing structure. The house supplemented by floor-to-ceiling windows, allow the interior flood with light and warmth. The depth generated by some frames located on the sides, articulating a play of light and color. The exposure of old and new elements are visible, but not intrusive as a whole. Contrasting styles brought together a dynamic cast and bold living environment. Despite all the contrary, the regular and harmonious spaces felt, all things fall into the right place.
The extension opens up to the rear courtyard and garden. There’s also a small wooden deck outside, where you can have coffee in the morning, near the extraordinary eucalyptus tree. According to the architects : “Internally a central concrete core creates the organisational and conceptual centre of the project. The concrete brings extra weight and presence to emphasize this. Contained within the core is the kitchen, the heart of the house. Located around the core are the livings spaces and dining room.”
