Modern Extension Of A Heritage Residence In Melbourne: The Enclave House
BKK Architects have completed the designed for the Enclave House, a contemporary extension for a heritage residence located in Melbourne, Australia. The new building boasts spacious and open interiors, with minimalist furniture arrangement. According to the architects, the project “required clever solutions and planning in order to overcome the restricted inner-city site”. The extension consists of a single volume, especially carved to let plenty of natural light inside.
Notwithstanding its high level of transparency, the inhabitants appreciate a decent amount of privacy: “Deep reveals to the upper floor windows shield the gaze from the surrounding neighbors. This also gives the residence a profound feeling of containment, similar to a defensive cover. The private courtyard garden links the studio space with the main residence. The landscape has been manipulated to frame the perspectives between the two“. Add a liberally estimated swimming pool and the image of a sumptuous modern home is complete.
