Sustainable House Randwick 2: A Semi-Detached Home with Wooden Shutters

Some homeowners aim to get a better exterior or an improved interior to fit their present lifestyle or just to go with the trend. That is why home remodels and improvements are common among homes no matter how old it is. There are even century old houses that are renovated in order to look modern. And the result of the revamp will always surprise us. While some homes would renovate most of its spaces, there are homeowners who prefer to just add an extension to increase their footprint for a much needed additional space for work, a family member, etc. Home additions are also common just like what the owners of the Randwick 2 wanted to achieve.
Today’s feature is a project called Sustainable House Randwick 2. The house has a beautiful design both in the exterior and the interior. The existing semi-detached house was in its original condition with the rear yard closed off to the rest house. The homeowners want the new living spaces to open out to an adjacent private open space as well as a first-floor addition to the rear of the house. The home is designed to meet the long term needs of a young professional couple. It is said that the alterations and additions to the project were inspired by the traditional childlike idea of a gable roofed house, and how that translates into the purity of form and order of structure within a piece of modern architecture. Meanwhile, the landscaping of the house is designed so that the outdoors flows into the internal living spaces, visually and spatially connecting the two. The north facing aspect of the rear yard provides excellent opportunities for passive solar heating. One nice feature of this home is the operable timber screening on the first floor as well an overhang over the ground floor control the building from overheating during the warmer months. Let us take a look at the house through the images below:
Location: Sydney, Australia
Designer: Day Bukh Architects
Style: Contemporary
Number of Floors: Two-storeys
Unique feature: The facade of the rear part of the house features wooden shutters which adds to its appeal and which brings more natural light into the home’s interior.

Seen in the rear extension of this contemporary home are wood slats that cantilever away from the house and provides shade for the small patio below.

Shown here is part of the original house which features a library. This can be seen before heading up to the new upper floor of the home.

The living room, kitchen and dining room share the same space, with the light wood kitchen running alongside one wall. It opens up to the outdoor area which can be accessed through glass doors. The interior has ample amount of natural light through the black curtains.

A wall of wine near the dining table and chairs isn’t just a wine storage but it is also a piece of art. Black beams break up the all white ceiling and match the stairs at the end...
