A contemporary extension

Location: Castlemaine
Architect: Advantage Design Draft
Key features: Scyon Axon cladding, Radial timber shiplap cladding, engineered limed floorboards, polished concrete slab, custom timber screens and joinery, timber and stone kitchen.

The demolition for this project was significant and involved removing a 1950s addition with a poorly designed and badly deteriorated kitchen and wet areas.

We began the new build by pouring a large concrete slab and installing heavily engineered steel columns and beams to support the windows and second story living.

External cladding combined Scyon Axon, a vertically grooved cladding panel, and Radial timber shiplap cladding which was left to silver off.

A large skylight and custom vanity in the main bathroom, located in the centre of the house, complement the feature bath and frameless shower. A second small kitchenette, laundry and en suite were added at ground level to service the guest room and pool area.

Pre-finished engineered floorboards were installed on the top story, but a hard-wearing polished concrete slab was used on ground level to better withstand traffic from the pool.

Lovely custom timber screens were used to maximise natural light and act as subtle divide between the old and the new parts of the home and custom joinery including a high-end timber and stone main kitchen and a day bed/window seat were added as the project developed.
