architecture matters p/l

Malvern East Additions & Alterations The addition of a kitchen and laundry, and open plan dining and living room to the rear of a Federation-era villa required an agile floor plan and low profile roof form to minimise the impact on the property's back yard in terms of footprint and bulk. A strong contemporary aesthetic was adopted to act as a counterpoint to the period detailing of the original house, with dramatic, raking ceilings and highlight dormer louvered windows incorporated into the new hip roofs, bringing daylight deep into the house and creating airy and open living spaces.
