David Barr Architects have recently completed a new modern extension and backyard for a pre-war suburban house, located in Claremont, Western Australia.

 

Inside the home, a new kitchen was added that features American Walnut wood cabinets, white countertops, and a stone backsplash.

Concrete floors have been paired with white walls and black window / door frames to create a clean and modern aesthetic. The new living room opens up to the backyard through a large sliding glass door.
