Recent urban house with timber and concrete, the two-storey annex was created by Australian studio Nobbs Radford Architects. The extension is designed to accommodate a house with a dining space and new open?plan living, together with extra bathroom and bedroom. The facade generates an attractive illusion by alternating protruding and rectangularly concrete blocks including black steel?framed windows, creating hidden cranny spaces in the inside.
In the interior, the clear charm and warmth of the joinery and oak furniture is cleverly placed side by side to the modernistic and urban excitement of the exposed concrete structures. The subtle pine floors and the modern furnishing in neutral hues create light also a stylish interior that feels fresh and welcoming. The whole assumption is filled with materials together with interior design aspects that present a clean, open sensation, adorned by some exciting art elements and features like the unusual shelves with timber staircase on the side of its treads along with the huddled, below the sloped roof, children’s corner. Using the plenty of natural lights, impressive design structures and raw element the designer of the project be successful in developing an elegant, functional and modern home addition.
Our architecture draws on ideas of place, light and beauty. Architecture exists in all realms of design from overall concept to the finest of details. The practice thrives on ideas that challenge preconceptions to allow a better way of bringing together the people who inhabit our designs into their place, site and neighbourhood. The practice has a commitment to take on projects of differing scales and programs. For us the pleasure of architecture is derived from providing a solution that is expressive of the context, the desires of the client and our skills. The practice has a continuing responsibility and enthusiasm towards sustainable principles. This exists from the fundamental considerations of site suitability, orientation, passive design principles and to evolving technologies. We believe in a well considered, long term approach to the implementation of these systems.
