Effort indeed – there is a real sense
of synergy to the extension. The kitchen
has cupboards that are the same colour
as its walls and ceiling, which complement
the lime-wash plywood wall panels
beside it. Different textures and materials
are used throughout the extension
to bring the space together, making it
“We really wanted the kitchen to feel
connected to the garden and to the dining
and lounge area,” says Simon. “The old
home felt quite disconnected.
02 Jarrah stairs and thoughtfully placed windows
add depth and texture to the extension.
03 The red concrete floor is a standout feature
of the extension and takes on different shades
depending on the light coming in to the room.
“We’ve tried to create little pockets
of intimacy every where, so if you’re
in the window seat, you can have your
own space, but you’re not completely
disconnected from the kitchen, dining
area or garden.”
And because of the colour scheme
the architects have chosen – which
Simon refers to as ‘doeskin’ in the
kitchen, and ‘lime wash’ in the living
and dining rooms – there’s a warmth
to the interior that extends throughout
the whole home.
