As is the case with many of these traditional heritage homes the homeowners of the Bundaroo House wanted to keep the street façade of the residence intact and it is the rear addition and extension that brings an air of freshness and modernity.
A cubic structure with industrial panache holds within it a smart modern interior that imitates the style and sensibility of an old and upgraded warehouse to perfection. An open plan living area with a sunken living room promotes interaction between family members while reclaimed wood adds warmth and brings a sense of old-world elegance.
A new basement level was added and the existing roof was extended creating two additional levels in the limited space available. The light-filled basement that extends into the private rear yard contains the new open plan living area along with the kitchen and dining room.
A series of glass walls and windows connects the interior with the garden and the mountain views beyond even as comfy modern décor and a neutral color scheme create an air of stylish comfort and timeless class.
Using a neutral color palette for your home is much harder than it looks. Getting it right is all about finding the right combination of colors and just enough excitement to ensure that the interior does not feel bland and boring.
