/ ANG HOUSE 2008

Alterations and additions to a Federation semi-detached house

A simple steel truss structure, housing a new living area and kitchen has been inserted into the rear of a Federation semi-detached house. The truss provides a column free space to the garden below and an industrial aesthetic not normally associated with a domestic setting. The diagonal struts of the truss extend from the living space to the louvred external deck, thereby spatially unifying the interior and exterior, and visually lengthening the spaces. The insertion utilizes materials of varied textures, all within a monochromatic colour palette. The consistency of colour, diagonal struts and careful placement of mirrors, increase the sense of space and the play of light within the dwelling.
