Coogee House in Sydney Featuring a Lovely Glass-Roofed Pergola

Coogee House in Sydney, Australia is an example of how modern design can be mixed and matched with healthy living.
Tanner Kibble Denton Architects is structured around a water feature and exudes an optimum indoor-outdoor connection. The inhabitants can enjoy time outdoors, despite the relatively small portion of land which remained unbuilt. A lovely glass roofed pergola is the focal point of this outdoor area, covering a special lounge “venue” which significantly extends the overall living space.

Warmth is added through an inspiring array of materials and finishes: “The house employs timber extensively in framing, cladding, flooring and ceilings, adding a richness to the spaces and warmth, particularly in the upper levels where occupants are closest to the clear finished timber ceiling. Generosity of space is provided through the double height volume, allowing other secondary spaces to be more modest and intimate”.

The stair is a major element in the house and is designed to be a prominent architectural element, while still providing an intimate experience. An atmosphere of soothing calm is released throughout, which is probably our favorite feature of this Sydney residence.

Charming Modern Home Extension Re-Shaping Socializing Opportunities

Extending a home to fit current needs is not to be taken easily. A modern home extension requires planning for future use and using what already exists to support that. An exemplary proof is Casa ATT by Dionne Arquitectos, a home in Puebla, Mexico, that was re-designed by the architects as a fuller, more nurturing collection of spaces. In their successful effort of renewing the outline of the house, architects integrated the new structure into the familiar floor plan by “generating clear transitional environments discovering visual axes and circulation leading to the new spaces.”

Plenty of socializing areas bring the family together: the new open social space, terrace and guest bedroom complete the necessary space and helps better organize the interiors. In addition, the terrace overlooking the garden connects the original volume with the new additions. In these photos captured by Patrick López Jaimes, the layout looks beautifully put together. From the front, the house looks private and once you step inside, details flood your design-hungry mind. According to the architects, “ATT House is a house in which a clear spatial harmony lives through environments that invite habitation.”

What do you think about this modern home extension? Can this home inspire you to extend your own piece of heaven? mo
