Interesting fact – according to statistics, the Australian homes turned out to be the second-biggest in the world. Rethinking and reimagining this approach towards suburban homes, the architects from Atelier Red+ Black created this beauty of white bricks for a young family of four. Fallowing the core question “what is enough?” the architects created a new generation home with an ambiance that offers as they call it; “little moments of delight.“
Creating a unique facade with elements inspired from the original building (build during the war when materials were a shortage), the architects choose to amplify some beautiful original features – the radiating Art Deco motifs and hand plastered lace-like walls were reimagined and used as details from this amazing home extension’s facade. The whitewash brick constructs also create a rich lace-like.
e patterns that allow penetration of light in the interior, and even the rainwater – collection function of the roof was turned into a rain-chain cascade of water for the gardens. An innovative and sustainable approach towards the natural surroundings that does not take away from the artistic character of this charming home.
The interiors offer charm and imagination corresponding to the architectural construct – cozy, noting over the top but still stylish and fresh. The play of shadow and light pattern filtered thought the spectacular facade is used as a protagonist of the interior decor. The irregular architectural shapes as well – like the sloped staircase angle hosting the custom – made a bookshelf. Small and untypically situated windows illuminate the interior of the privet quarters decided in organic materials – wood, concrete, and linen. The home decor features whiteness and purity, combined with a modern functional edge. Concrete structures (entwined with wooden accents) and contemporary art objects situate the decor into the present. Photos: Peter Bennetts;
