Hawthorn House

Posted on Wed, 23 Jan 2013 by midcenturyjo

Melbourne based creates buildings of their time and yet timeless. There is a calmness and a simple presence to their work. Form and functional not flashy and fake. That doesn’t mean drab and cookie cutter either. This Hawthorn house is a case point. The existing Victorian era home was restored and freed from generations of fragmented renovations while the new extension took the house into the 21st century and provided a focus for open plan family living with a strong connection to the outdoors. Love the strong linear connection between the walk in pantry, kitchen bench that transforms into dining table.

Unbelievable renovation. Sooooooo clean, and has a warmth to it as well.

Can you hear me sighing all the way from the frozen Canadian wilds?
