Finnis Architects with Damon Hills, have recently completed ‘The Light Box’, a modern extension that has been added to a heritage home in Melbourne, Australia.

 

Due to the original house being dilapidated, the architects gave the house a street front restoration, maintaining its role in the historical and aesthetic significance of the neighborhood.

In the kitchen, a window with views of the garden has been used as a backsplash, while hidden behind a wooden door at the end of the counter opens to reveal a hidden walk-in pantry with plenty of storage.
