Friday Eye Candy: The Kensington Residence

Friday Eye Candy: The Kensington Residence: Figure 1

In today’s Friday Eye Candy, we look at a house in Sydney, Australia originally built in the 1920s, though you’d never know it from the exterior. CplusC designed the “addition” on this home, which truly transformed the residence

From the architect:

Preserving the existing building envelope, the ground floor and first floor were transformed to provide additional bedrooms and a versatile social area with kitchen, living and dining opening up to a new outdoor entertaining area. … The reworking of the existing addition creates new opportunities for access to improved natural ventilation and provides generous volumes to the new living spaces and master bedroom. Cypress Pine has been utilized as batten screens to provide a durable and attractive element to the first floor facades, softening the impact of the previous alterations.”
