Lucy Clemenger Architects has designed the modern renovation and extension of an 1880s Victorian house in Melbourne, Australia.

Inside, there’s a hallway that leads from the front door to the new rear extension, where it opens up to a wood-lined foyer. A small step down connects leads to the new open plan living room, dining area, and kitchen.

This wood lined foyer separates the old part of the house from the new modern addition. A small step down leads to an open plan kitchen and living room, where a built-in bookshelf creates a small library area. #Foyer #Stairs #Bookshelf

In the living room, a built-in wood bookshelf lines the wall, and adds a warmth to the room.

Throughout the interior, cool greys, warm caramels, and deep greens mimic the textures and colors found in the plants outside.

Opposite the living room is the kitchen, where minimalist white cabinets blend into the wall, and run the length of the room.

The dining table has been designed so that it can extend the kitchen island, or stand alone for larger family meals.

Both the living room and kitchen open up to a patio and the garden, where you’re able to see the new cantilevered wood addition.

Back inside, and there’s wood stairs with a built-in handrail that lead to the upper floor of the home.
