Alteration & Addition.
Sited amongst the leafy treetops of Caulfield North, The Counterpoint House utilises its dual aspect and close proximity to parkland to provide its residents with a quiet refuge for a growing family. Taking cues from its unique location, this home is oriented to make the most of the views to the south whilst harvesting natural light from the north.
Through careful restoration and refurbishment, the existing dwelling is retained and returned to its former glory, with the rear extension using its pitched roof and recycled brick façade to pay homage to the home’s heritage context, and allowing a series of new spaces to be created.
Internally, the existing rooms were given a new life through a gentle, light touch approach, whilst a neutral colour pallet of greens and natural timbers allow the new spaces to reflect the home’s tranquil surrounds, and bringing a sense of the outside in.
Using the first floor bridge as a circulation point that removes the need for traditional hallways, the rear of this home was designed with a priority towards openness, connection, and liveability, allowing the clients to interact with one another through a variety of vantage points within the home.
Understated yet elegant, the Counterpoint House provides an inspiring space for a young family to grow and create memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.
