ROAM Architects have designed a modern extension for a Victorian cottage in Melbourne, Australia.
Stepping inside, the white hallway, with some original features, leads from the front of the house to the rear, where the extension is located.
The extension features a 29 foot (9m) wrap around bench that follows the wall with large sliding glass windows, and leads into the kitchen.
In the two-tone kitchen, dark blue cabinets have been used for the lowers, while minimalist white cabinets create additional storage and blend into the white walls.
A low wood wall between the kitchen and living room provides open shelving for displaying decor. The white kitchen cabinets continue through to the living room too, and incorporate a built-in bench.
The exterior features a curvaceous timber facade and a wood deck. Over time, the fences will be covered by climbers so the interiors will look out to a wall of green.
Back inside, there’s a small sitting room that’s furnished with a comfortable chair and bench.
There’s also a small home office with wood shelving that’s hidden within a closet.
In one of the bathrooms, a black and wood vanity contrasts the white walls, while the mirror reflects light throughout the space.
