Contemporary Makeover of an Australian Home: the Haberfield House

Haberfield House 2 Contemporary Makeover of an Australian Home: the Haberfield House

Haberfield House is one of those homes that conveys a sense of modern family urban living. Designed by Lahznimmo Architects, the 180 square meters residence situated in Sydney’s Hatherfield neighbourhood received a modern makeover not long ago. The existing floor plan was altered to make better use of light, natural ventilation and space. A dark glazed brick clad living cube in the back of the house connects the space to the outdoor garden and surprises with a high timber veneer ceiling. The kitchen received an addition in the form of a timber batten clad outdoor room, used as dining facility. A beautiful white breezeblock wall saved from the former house additions decorates the space. With a timber deck connecting the internal spaces, the residence ensures a chic and comfortable lifestyle while a 5000 litre tank underneath the deck collects rainwater for toilet flushing, clothes washing and the irrigation system. Surprisingly contemporary, the former crowded residence has been transformed into a modern gathering place for the family.

    I think this house is way too dark. The majority of the light is artificial.
