In the studio this week we welcome another Build Award - Best East Midlands Residential Architecture Project for Marsh Flatts Farm. Huge congratulations to all involved.
We hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
Despite the snowy-slushy conditions in September. 😬
Take a look at a few pictures of the completed work at the ISL Engineering renovation we did for Gold Wing Construction!
Kiah House by @austinmaynardarchitects
Kiah House is an addition to a weatherboard cottage in North Fitzroy, Melbourne. The extension comprises two separate pieces of architecture, the master bedroom ‘haven’ - which sits beside the original house extending to the northern boundary, and the separate office poised above. The original Victorian-era house, built in 1927, has been respectfully restored and updated with a new kitchen and bathroom.
The owners, Angela and Rahul had a clear idea of what a home meant to them - “a sanctuary”. They wanted a light and airy house, with a “strong and positive vibe”, to entertain friends and family and also to relax and meditate. Influenced by Japanese gardens and the Buddhist retreats of Kyoto, the design responds to the client’s desire for peace and mindfulness. The bathroom at Kiah takes you to a different place. The sunken brick bath, big enough for two, has an earthy character similar to the ancient Onsen. The master bedroom retreat, with a dedicated Buddhist prayer space, opens up to the garden and ponds via sliding double-glazed glass panels, blurring the lines between inside and outside. An old towering lemon-scented gum tree is embraced and encircled, both physically and metaphorically. .
