Demanding Modern Design for Two-Level House Extension in Australia
Have a look at this daring architecture approach taken on by the Australian architects March Studio! According to the project developers, the Mullet house “performs contorted gymnastics in order to facilitate an ambitious brief on a small, yet opportunistic site“. The clients, Scott Smith and Phoebe Moore, wanted to commission not only a new and comfortable home, but also sought a challenging design.
The unconventional two-level house extension features an original angular roof contributing to the aerodynamic shape of the bungalow-inspired building. Excavated into the ground, the garage area was left open, while the upper volume was enclosed by glass. It is here that the extra bedrooms and bathrooms are located. “The new extension is not meant to be sympathetic to an older style but rather has been shaped by the clients’ brief, solar access and one of Melbourne’s best views back onto the city,” explained the architects.
