A Wood Extension Creates Extra Living Space In This Australian House

The original home is a turn-of-the-century weatherboard home, that from the front is Victorian, however the new wood extension at the rear of the home is contemporary. Mick and Jules wanted to renovate the main home and open it up to accommodate the changing needs of their family of five. The contemporary extension continues the roof line of the house, allowing the old and the new to sit side-by-side, respecting the heritage of the original house. The extension is an open room with the kitchen, dining and living room all sharing the same space. A Creative And Imaginative Play Centre Has Opened In Sydney.

Working closely with the team at NUBO, Frost*collective created all of the branded elements of NUBO, while PAL Design Associates set out to create an environment for the children that would be a beautiful and innovative space. Inside there’s a variety of different rooms, each with a unique look designed to evoke imagination. The main room, as seen below, has an area for parents to sit and watch their children play on the climbing structure and slides. In a smaller play area, a simple color palette of wood, white, and blue (and a touch of grey) make up this fun space that includes a slide that ends in a ball pit, as well as stairs and small nooks, perfect for kids to play in.

There are also playrooms that have been set up for art activities. The Floor In This House Is Filled With Glass Circles That Allow Light To Pass Through To The Floor Below.

Kitchen Design Idea – Include A Trash Chute In Your Counter

Brushing crumbs and bits of food carefully into your hands only to end up with half of it on the floor, or trying to wipe all of it into the sink but leaving half of it wedged under the lip of the sink leaves us wondering why we even try. Bathroom Design Idea – Black, Brass, White and Wood. Photography by Veronika Raffajová Often black in bathrooms can make them feel dark and closed in, but in this Prague apartment, architect Lenka Míková combined black with brass, white, and wood to give it a contemporary, luxurious feeling.

Black hexagonal tiles cover the walls and are only broken up by the brass taps and faucet above the bath and in the glass enclosed shower. The brass carries on through to the built-in backlit mirror surround and shelf, essentially highlighting them in a wall of black. A white sink, bath, and toilet add to the brightness of the bathroom, while a wood vanity, sliding door, and cabinetry adds a softer, more natural touch to the bathroom.

How to make a design impact using simple pieces of wood. Design intérieur - innovations architecturales. Il n’est pas nécessaire d’être un lecteur avide de Dan Brown pour se rendre compte que notre monde est de plus en plus peuplé. Et avec ce surpeuplement, on doit renoncer aux demeures spacieuses, qui deviennent de plus en plus rares et de plus en plus chères.

Ces problèmes de densification sont déjà connus dans les grandes villes, comme Paris, Londres ou New York, où le surpeuplement est un fait depuis des siècles. Bien sûr, le domaine du design intérieur ne peut pas faire fi de cette réalité. En effet, c’est un des casse – têtes les plus importants de nos temps, mais aussi un énorme stimulus pour la créativité des architectes. Des sciences comme l’ergonomie regagnent de l’actualité, car les dimensions minimum des espaces habitables nous intéressent plus que jamais.
