                                Around the back of a weatherboard house in Melbourne is a new, two-story modular extension, named <a href="https://www.modscape.com.au/homes/ivanhoe-extension/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Ivanhoe</a>, designed by <a href="https://www.modscape.com.au/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Modscape</a> to transform the lives of the homeowners. Instead of moving to a new house to meet their needs, the growing family chose to add the light-filled extension that visually connects the interior with the private backyard.
Floor-to-ceiling windows offer unobstructed views of the landscaped yard and neighboring trees. The dining room benefits from cornerless sliding glass doors that make it feel like you’re eating outside. The extension is clad in sustainably-sourced Blackbutt wood and Colorbond Diversaclad which result in a beautiful contrast that’s elevated by the curved battened screen. Besides adding modern character to the home, it provides shade from the sun, as well as privacy for the upstairs master suite. A new, double-height entryway was created in the middle of the home right between the new and existing

Originally a nondescript single story residence, <a href="http://studiodex.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">DEX Studio</a> created the two-story home by adding a second floor to the original. The renovation and addition made way for views that span all the way to the Hollywood Sign, a huge bonus in Los Angeles real estate.
The design included using lots of warm woods, initially spotted under the exterior roof overhangs which feature redwood cladding running opposing ways on each floor. The extended roof lines offer protection from the sun while adding to the home’s curb appeal. A section of the lower overhang is cut out allowing the tree below to grow up through the hole with no disruption. The front entryway has an expanded porch where the owners can sit outside and enjoy the weather. The backyard

                                <a href="http://www.acdf.ca/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">ACDF Architecture</a> was hired by a large family to add more space to their traditional house in Saint-Donat-de-Montcalm, Canada. Surrounded by birch trees, Chalet La petite soeur expands with a new extension that connects to the original house via a glass bridge. The all-white addition rests atop a concrete base with a shape that resembles the main structure. The dramatic juxtaposition of the two volumes makes for an overall striking exterior while respecting the natural surroundings.
The main floor features floor-to-ceiling windows that allow for uninterrupted views of Lake Ouareau. Natural wood elements are paired with polished concrete floors and black wood slats for a clean and cozy, modern interior space. The bridge is framed in oak wood driving eyes to peek through to the original space on the other side. Photos by Adrien Williams, courtesy of v2com.
