Folded Roof in Charred Cypress Creates a Stunning Modern Extension Down Under
The idea of extending the old and dark house with a modern rear extension is one that you can find all across the globe. And as a rule, it is often a giant glass box along with wood and steel that comes to the rescue. But the Pleated House in Highett, Australia is a bit different from the rest both in terms of form and execution. Providing a gorgeous, light-filled extension to a single storey weatherboard residence in the suburbs of Melbourne, this modern extension designed by Megowan Architectural uses a folded roof form that gives the space an identity of its own.
