A bar fridge, recessed into the rear wall of the bunker, combines with upholstered seating, planter and TV to create a highly functional pool side haven.

The rear area of this residence did not meet the requirements of a highly active family. With foresight in mind, the area was reconfigured to provide amenities for four children, parents and friends.

An existing outdoor living space was extended to include a honed masonry fireplace, AV hub and portable lounge. A timber landing separates the spa and lap pool, the pool widening at one end to provide a deeper diving area. A plywood clad bunker at the end of the pool is orientated back towards the house; lounges, planter and recessed bar fridge all provide a pool side haven for children and adults. A powder room at the rear of the bunker and an adjacent recreation terrace further contribute to a flexible and functional project.

The project provides a new two-storey rear extension to this Victorian terraced house in South London. The existing narrow kitchen extension on ground floor was remove and replaced with a new light filled kitchen and dining area. The ground floor is expanded sideways filling the entire width of the plot with reconfiguration of the existing internal layout to incorporate a washroom and generous arrival hall. Volumetrically, the ground and first floor extension is articulated into two distinct volumes constructed from a light coloured pigmented concrete block, which provide a subtle distinction from the main house. The windows in this new volume are made from oak, which has also been used in the interiors.

The project extends and reorganises the house to create living accommodation appropriate to 21st Century living while respecting the importance and character of the original historic house. A comprehensive historical study revealed an almost identical translation of scale and proportion to that of Andrea Palladio’s ‘Villa with superimposed Portico’ from book four of ‘I quattro libri dell’architettura’ with further investigations revealing the original architect, John Palmer, appears to have developed the house to conform to the systematic rules laid out by Palladio for both parametric formulas and objects in plan and elevation.

Through this study, a series of appropriate small interventions were proposed to undo previous internal restructuring of the house and restore the original plan form. A contemporary loggia space conceived of the same ruling geometry of the existing house were added in place of the previously removed garden structure. The new loggia opens up the living space and reunites the house with its garden.

Larch House by Nicholas Szczepaniak Architects

Location : Islington , London, UK

Scope : Ground Floor Rear Extension



Architects: Nicholas Szczepaniak Architects

We were approached by a couple to transform a tired and dated Victorian property into a contemporary family home for their young family. Works involved an extensive refurbishment and reconfiguration of the existing house with a new contemporary and bespoke rear extension.

Inspired by the dual nationality of the couple (British and Australian) the property is designed to have two distinct characters. The existing areas of the house which contain reception, living room and a bedroom retain original Victorian spatial proportions whilst details such as skirting boards and cornicing are reinstated.

The new side and rear wrap around extension was conceived as contemporary reading of an Australian veranda structure. It is designed to act as a threshold space between the existing darker areas of the house, garden and sky to create an uplifting open plan kitchen and dining space.

The concept for this modern home was to translate an existing 1990s office fit-out into a contemporary residence while honouring the historic charm of the building and giving the owners a comfortable home with bold design modifications.

Introducing the impressive engineered double height brick vault ceiling to the restructured rear wing seemed an appropriate element for the Italianate style of the house.  This brings to modern design such elements of historical grandeur that gave rise to the great architecture of early civilisations bestowing the notion ‘the arch never sleeps’.

Renato+D'Ettorre.jpg
Renato D’Ettorre

Born in Italy, moved to Australia with his family in the 1960’s, studied architecture at the University of Technology, Sydney.

In 1984 Renato lived in Sardinia investigating many architectural sites around the mediterranean islands.  He later worked for Pier Luigi Nervi and Paolo Portoghesi in Roma and Harry Seidler and Romaldo Giurgola in Sydney.

Renato started his sole practice in 1990 after a commission for a house in South Coogee. The house, with a magnificent site by the sea, inspired Renato to take the opportunity to forge a personal path within the plurality of the modern architectural milieu.

The personal path chosen has manifested itself not only in his design values, but also in the practice of his architecture; an intuitive way of working in which projects are allowed to develop in their own good time through continual revision and modification, working through the endless design possibilities in architecture.

Renato’s architecture draws inspiration from past masters and civilizations, attempting to represent the present with a desire to leave enduring buildings for the future.

House. Koller by Architect Prineas


Location: Earlwood, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Year: 2014


Architects: Architect Prineas

Photography © Chris Warnes



‘House. Koller’ is a renovation and extension for a Swiss couple and their two children. For them, the choice of timber was a nostalgic one. The new timber pavilion plays with traditional Swiss building methods. It serves as a little reminder of the couple’s childhood memories in Switzerland. The traditional shiplap cladding plays against the contemporary form – a tactile container for contemporary living. Between the timber extension and existing house is a smooth transition that takes full advantage of the sunlight. It has plenty of openings and provides a visual, and at times, direct connection to the garden. The families Swiss heritage is carried into the renovated spaces, where traditional timber details are treated with a contemporary sensibility – hearths, picture rails or floorboards are painted white or lime-washed and sit comfortably alongside the contemporary pavilion.

Year: 2016

Winner – AJ Retrofit Awards Best Extension over £500,000
Shortlisted – NLA Awards Don’t Move Improve 2016


This project is a radical remodelling of a house in a Conservation area for a young family. The design adds a new basement and a rear extension, which provides expanded living and kitchen space, sky lit sun-filled bathrooms, a home cinema, playroom and guest bedroom. We sought to create an innovative design – rethinking the basement typology in a contemporary way.

The ambitions for the project were high in terms of achieving open plan, visually connected spaces to allow for a greater sense of communication between the different rooms. The key strategy was also the connection to nature through views and natural light.

The conceptual approach was to create a calm atmospheric interior using carved out spaces that allow the pared down use of materials to have a monolithic feel.

The new basement area is lit by large skylights cut into the floors above. All levels are opened out to allow the existing rooms of the Victorian house to give way to an open plan interior on the ground floor and tall loft like spaces upstairs. The kitchen and living rooms open out to a south-west facing patio, creating a strong connection of house and garden.

The new extension to the rear links into the old brickwork through a curved wall suspended above the ground above a completely glazed set of folding doors. The bathrooms are top lit by generous skylights linking bathing spaces to the sky above. The existing ceilings were removed upstairs creating tall vertical spaces with curved ceilings.

The clients of the Modern Side Extension found themselves in a position common to countless thousands of other people in the UK, which makes the house we designed for them of generic value to others. Living in a three-bedroom terraced house, they wanted to expand and remodel for open-plan living on a limited budget. They especially wanted to avoid the cold and clinical aesthetic of many contemporary homes.

Conservation area-friendly brick, glass and bi-fold doors unite in a complex three-dimensional composition. Respectful to neighbours, the Modern Side Extension shows that the smallest architectural projects can be transformational.

Inside, the materials – polished concrete floors, brick, European oak and white sprayed MDF joinery – are warm and unostentatious. Bi‐fold doors and frameless rooflight glazing dissolves the distinction between inside and out and allow light deep into the property.

The Modern Side Extension is a homely and uncompromisingly modern answer to the question of how to extend a terraced home.


coffey-architects_modern-side-extension_10_london-e1465379410166SOLID & VOID


Coffey Architects have avoided both the typical glass side infill solution and the intrusive projecting rear extension by reversing the infill condition. Built from contextually apt London Stock brick, this essentially involves a structural solution that allows the existing volume of the house to slip past a brick pier; a continuation of the party wall. The composition is a subtle game of solid and void, breaking down the threshold between new and old, inside and outside.


STRONG, WARM MATERIALS THAT AGE BEAUTIFULLY


The self‐finished internal materials including polished concrete floors, brick, European oak and white sprayed MDF joinery add a sense of context and warmth; a key criteria of the client who wished to avoid the cold and clinical aesthetic of many contemporary residential projects.


coffey-architects_modern-side-extension_11_londonDISSOLVING THE BOUNDARIES


Slim aluminium bi‐fold doors and frameless rooflight glazing ensure the distinction between inside and outside is dissolved; in effect making the exterior another room of the house and allowing light to permeate deep within the property. No columns, no dodgy glazed infills, no ostentatious materials. The Modern Side Extension is an uncompromisingly modern solution to the expansion of a terraced home.

Claremont Residence by David Barr Architect

Location: Claremont, Perth, Western Australia

Awards:
2016: Winner – Architecture Award, Alterations and Additions
2016 Shortlisted, Houses Award, Alternation and Additions


This extension to a pre-war suburban house is generated by a series of brick volumes connected by discreet landscaped areas. A clear grid informs the new addition’s planning, with each of the main spaces (dining room, living room, bedroom) located separately.

The project extends the house into the garden, the plan shifted and manipulated to capture views of beautiful mature trees on the site and in neighbouring gardens. Distinct spaces are created externally (a courtyard, a formal lawn, a raised external dining area and pool) and then drawn back into the house through large areas of glazed openings.

The project’s materials are a juxtaposition between the brickwork, ‘bagged’ and painted white, and dark steel and timber elements that link them. Large sliding doors, their frames concealed, open the major rooms to the garden and courtyards. Deep window reveals open to the north, while operable timber screens shield western windows from the sun.

Internally a restrained palette of concrete floors, plaster walls and American Walnut timber joinery gives the client’s art and furniture collection prominence, while simultaneously creating a backdrop for their young family to add vitality.
