The design team of the design studio Rolf Ockert Design has just completed the construction of the modern extension of a house classified historic heritage in Sidney.
The project, named 46 North Avenue, aimed to add extra living space for a young couple with children. Before the extension, the one-level house covered an area of 100 m2 which was considered insufficient by the family. One way to meet the needs of the inhabitants would have been to build a second floor.
But it would be in violation of the rules of urban architecture in the neighborhood. This is what the architects of Rolf Ockert had to take into account. The decision was made to build an adjacent modern extension that extends the house and enlarges it in length. As seen in the photos, the difference in styles between the two buildings is obvious.
Modern extension of a historic heritage house in Sidney
On one side we have a charming traditional house on one floor with the typical brick facade, on the other, a modern extension of a rectangular geometry, covered of gray gum tree. A highlight of this creation is the particularly original interior design. The brightly colored décor creates a warm atmosphere that contrasts with the unassuming exterior. The living room is particularly light and airy. The paintings on the walls reinforce the sense of space and comfort.
