Breezy And Cool 1960’s House Extension In Melbourne

Lean to House is a 1960’;s house extension in Australia designed by Warc Studio. 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 3 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!
