White Plaster, Red Plate
A house from the 1960s is complemented by a two-storey expansion. The design premise was to avoid a blatant and bulky look and instead conserve the existing building as a recognizable1960s structure encouraging a reciprocal relationship between old and new. In contrast to the white stucco of the 1960s building the expansion stands out prominently with its red coloured facade cladding.
Massive slabs cut out around the strip windows and frame them, also providing sun protection. On the ground floor both parts of the building converge into an ample, free-flow living, dining and kitchen open-plan while the bedrooms are located on the upper level, resulting in a spacious and open house with more than 200sqm of floor area that satisfies every demand of modern living.
