Breezy And Cool 1960’s House Extension in Melbourne

Lean to House is a 1960’s house extension in Australia designed by . Built to capture the essence of mid-century modern aesthetic, it looks positively modernist and cool.

Thin timber slats and fins, interchanging with copious amounts of glass, create a breezy look in the space reserved for cooking, eating, and lounging.

While the original building boasts brick walls and black tile roof, the modern extension is light with a timber carcass and white plastered walls.

The area inside provides space for three zones – kitchen, dining, and living. Outside, there is a wooden bench and terrace, enhancing a perfectly cozy green lawn.

A small corridor that leads to the extended premises separates from the main house with a sliding pocket door. But to create some communication between the areas, the architects incorporated a window in the living area that opens to the home office.

Extension façade isn’t the only place with windows and access to daylight. Kitchen backsplash opens up to the backyard, and there is a sneaky skylight in the ceiling. At the opposite end of the room, there is a great window that comes with a storage-friendly seat that wraps around the corner. A perfect reading nook!
