Australian architecture firm Bryant Alsop, have completed a rear addition to a house in Melbourne.

The owner’s request was to keep the heritage house and to create a long-term family home for themselves and their two sons, who have a love of sports and the outdoors.

The new addition is located at the rear of the home, and a hallway leading from the front door opens up to an open-plan living room and kitchen. In the living room, dark brick surrounds the fireplace, while wood shelving creates a small display area beside it.

Behind the living room is the kitchen. A large island doubles as a dining area, while dark cabinets line the wall and wrap around behind the stairs.

The new wood clad addition opens up to the backyard, where there’s a patio, a grassy area, and a swimming pool, which was required to sit above ground due to the local bedrock underneath.
