1950s Suburban Home in Melbourne with Ingenious Second Floor Extension
Adding a new structure to an old home is always a task that demands both care and precision. One needs to balance aesthetics with ergonomics while ensuring that the old and the new find space next to one another. The same is the case with Ruby, a renovated home in the suburbs of Melbourne that was originally built in the 1950s by C.C. Sainsbury for assisted veterans. In its new form, the house perfectly meets the demands of a modern family as a new second storey addition transforms the interior with a new kitchen, dining area, kids bedrooms and study. Yet the revamp carried out by Foomann Architects, perfectly complements the existing old brick and wood structure.
