is a Melbourne-based studio that got here to our interest through their Trentham preservation venture. It represents the preservation of a Nineteen Eighties residence that is positioned in the Trentham location of Victoria, Australia.some of the troubles that the prevailing house had was the shortage of sunlight as a result of the small home windows. This became most of the maximum essential necessities for the preservation.
The concrete and masonry extension of the Trentham residence become designed to contrast the construction kind and aesthetic of the present 1890’s weatherboard domestic, whilst also maximising herbal mild to the proposed living and alfresco areas. The pavilion style addition became designed as a sequence of strong and glazed vertical planes sandwiched among horizontal floor and roof planes, with areas orientated closer to the garden, and faraway from neighbours.
We believe it turned into vital for the materiality of the extension’s façade to create a experience of permanence and solidity, and that the usage of a neutral colour palette could decorate the visual impact of the surrounding ecu garden, and now not compete with the prevailing faded blue end of the weatherboard domestic.
long and narrow bricks were used as it is believed these narrow proportions contribute to the horizontality of the extension’s contemporary structure, while also referencing the adjoining weatherboards of the prevailing duration domestic.
