Ben Callery Architects worked together with builder Truewood Construction to design and complete a modern extension on a house in Melbourne, Australia, whose owners wanted to open up the back of the house to take advantage of the sun. #ModernHouseExtension #Roof #ModernRoof #Architecture

The sculptural roof sits over the extension and twists symmetrically around a central ridge. Clerestory windows follow the roof line allow sunlight to enter the interior from all sides.

Inside, there’s a white timber ceiling that compliments the walls and built-in storage cabinets, and is used to create a sense of lightness to the space.

As with many Australian homes, indoor / outdoor living is a must, and with this house, a window in the kitchen opens up to the recycled brick patio and acts as a bar.

In the kitchen, recycled timber cabinetry adds a natural touch and it ties in with the timber window frames and wood dining table to create a contemporary appearance.


This modern kitchen features recycled wood cabinets, white tiles, cabinets and countertops. #ModernKitchen #KitchenDesign #WoodCabinets
