White House is a delightful architecture project from MCK, a company whose works we’ve become very fond of. Born from a series of alterations and additions to an old Federation building located in Sydney, this residence is currently a charming, all-equipped family crib. A combination of sandstone, shingles and bricks stood at the basis of the already existing building design.These elements were kept and improved which gives the home a lovely traditional appearance. Here is more from the official project description: “Our philosophy is that good architecture is created through good collaboration and successful compromise.  The challenges of designing a ‘modern’ extension to a significant Federation house in a conservation area were embraced with the result a smooth collaboration between architect, client and council. The addition wraps around the old which is legible both internally and externally.  Materials used on all surfaces move inside and out and all planes and spaces become articulated.” How do you find this uncommon mix of old and new?
