Victorian house extension in Australia

This Victorian house in Melbourne, Australia feels likes stepping through time and space. This creative house extension designed by Matt Gibson Architecture is a true work of art. Three minimalist cubes are built behind the existing Victorian house. The green interior matches with the green front door, providing continuity to the space.

International Interior Design Award, The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne

Melbourne’s new $1 billion (Aus) Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH),  unveiled by Queen Elizabeth II was designed by joint venture between Billard Leece Partnership and Bates Smart Architects (BLBS), with US-based HKS as international advisors. The RCH received the ‘International Interior Design Award’ at the 2012 Emirates Glass LEAF Awards, which took place during this year’s London Design Festival. RCH is based on state-of-the-art ideas developed by the hospital around a family centred care model that puts children and their families at the centre of the facility. Using innovative and evidence-based design principles, the RCH reflects changing healthcare practices, workplace patterns, user expectations, community aspirations and environmental responsibility.

The Indoor/Outdoor Life

Sydney-based architect Christopher Polly turned a compact semi-detached 1890 dwelling on a compromised lot into a spacious indoor/outdoor living pavilion for a young family.

Had the budget been larger, a second story would have made sense, but it was not to be. Polly’s solution? Use the existing house for sleeping quarters, and add a modern extension housing the kitchen and dining areas. The new structure opens wide to the outdoors, via sliding pocket doors, allowing the family to live an indoor/outdoor existence. To see more, visit Christopher Polly.
