Modern Extension of a Heritage Residence in Melbourne: The Enclave House
BKK Architects have completed the designed for the Enclave House, a contemporary extension for a heritage residence located in Melbourne, Australia. The new building boasts spacious and open interiors, with minimalist furniture arrangement. According to the architects, the project “required clever solutions and planning in order to overcome the restricted inner-city site”. The extension consists of a single volume, especially carved to let plenty of natural light inside.
Despite its high degree of openness, the inhabitants enjoy a good amount of privacy: “Deep reveals to the upper floor windows shield the gaze from the surrounding neighbors. This also gives the residence a profound sense of containment, like a protective cocoon. The private courtyard garden links the studio space with the main residence. The landscape has been manipulated to frame the views between the two“. Add a generously-sized swimming pool and the image of a luxurious modern home is complete.
