Melbourne-based architectural firm Jackson Clements Burrows (JCB) has designed this cantilevered addition to a small 1,000 square foot Edwardian house in Melbourne, Australia.
The 1,700 square foot extension features three bedroom and a bathroom on the second floor, and a large living area on ground floor.
The cantilevered structure provides shade and shelter, without sacrificing too much of the space in the backyard.
The 4,840 square foot self catering villa is composed of two buildings: the country house known as the Gold House, which includes the addition, and the stables, known as The Other Side.
Vienna-based architectural firm Propeller Z has completed an addition to a 200 year old farmhouse in Fahndorf, Austria.
Within a budget of 70,000 euros, Propeller Z succeed to build an amazing contemporary addition (590 sq ft) including a kitchen and living space.
Attached to one of the farm’s U-shaped arms, the new dwelling sits elevated on the terrain, opening completely with floor-to-ceiling glass.
To keep the budget low, Propeller Z, decided to work with local materials: the ceiling and entry platform are clad in warm wood, while floors are made of concrete.
The new addition is insulated with recycled newspaper, and the North facade, skinned with a wood stack that spans entire length of the facade is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, plus it adds an extra layer of insulation and protection.
