Welcome once again to Facades World Dear readers. Today, we bring you a work of 250 m2 designed by the studio Mitsouri Architects, which is located in Armadale, Australia ... We present "Armadale House 2".
This work is a renovation and extension of a house of Victorian style already existing in Armadale, based on a discreet addition and extension for the best use of a compact space.
The house is composed of two floors, which were located in a compact way to maintain the largest possible patio area. Its materiality is centered on the wood, concrete and glazing From floor to ceiling that allow better lighting and spaciousness.
On the front of this work you can see a modern style facade where we will find a wooden deck. This covers half of the land reaching the main entrance that is located in the center, followed to the right by another large glazed entrance that allows direct access to the kitchen.
All the carpentries of the same one are of wood, the most outstanding are the five thin vertical structures of wood, located to the left of the main entrance, that fulfill the function of regulator of the light since they can turn according to the necessity of the inhabitant.
The accesses are varied since in addition to the front, you can also access the backyard, and therefore the interior of the house, through a corridor that is on the left side of the house.
On the ground floor of the Armadale House 2 We found the spacious room, the kitchen with island and the dining room with polished concrete floor, which has direct access to the deck. In the back there are three bedrooms, a private living room and in the center a circulation area that leads to the backyard of the house. The garage of this house is located in the front of the building, but it is separated by a wall so as not to contaminate the visual of the garden that the wide openings allow.
The upper floor contains only a master suite and a terrace, both of which are totally designed as private spaces. The staircase that leads to it has a railing made of glass and steel handrail. The white tones, the dark oak wood cladding of some walls, as well as the simple lighting and equipment, give the work a minimalist design.
