I love the transformation that this Victorian house has taken. The modern update was executed by MCK Architects out of Sydeny. The picture that caught my eye was the kitchen. Clean lines mix with the colors of wood, black and white. The back of the house completely opens up via large sliding glass doors, wished I lived in a climate that could accommodate that type of versatility. The lap pool is nice with the white natural block stone.

An ever growing young family led to an evolving design in this project in Sydney’s east. An alteration and addition to an existing detached victorian house, our insertion at the rear aimed to bring much needed northern light into the new rear living spaces. This was achieved through a series of voids and clerestory windows, which add vertical dimension and a dialogue between private and public space. Again, this house build’s upon the narritive of contrast in old and new – in materials, form and space.

    Great looking addition! I would never have imagined that anyone could make a Victorian house look so modern.

    So nice! I used to live in a house in Sydney which looked like that from the front, but sadly nothing like that from the back….
