This project, for an extension and renovation of a 1930s house in Marino, is an exercise in turning a modest family home into a dynamic and comfortable place to live using the most common elements and materials. Our extension creates a contemporary aesthetic by utilizing the existing character of the house and neighbourhood in a new and more spatial way.

This project for an extension and renovation to a 1920’s house in Marino is an exercise in turning a modest family home into a dynamic and comfortable place to live using the most common elements and materials. Our extension creates a contemporary aesthetic by utilising the existing character of the house and neighbourhood in a new and more spatial way. Pebble dash and plaster banding stitch old and new together and create a portal to the garden beyond. Internally, the painted cladding, beams and columns form a rhythm that unifies the existing living room through to the new extension while creating an open plan with clearly defined spaces. A well placed mirror doubles both the space of the house and the light of the central roof light which appears as both a semi-circle and circle depending on your point of view.
