Slope roof extension: an architectural project in Melbourne, Australia
The sloped roof extension mentioned in our article of the day is a project that came about as a result of the collaboration between the owners and architects of the MRTN melbournien architecture studio.
At the request of their clients, a family with 3 children, the architects should create a modern extension. It should be designed to house a living room, kitchen and dining room. As a result, the extension and the existing property connected via a corridor, giving access to a bathroom and a laundry room.
The bathroom has been arranged in the most compact way possible. An Italian shower and a micro bath give it an extra charm. On the tiled side, the small squared tiles in green blue with white joints complete the original decor.
Get inspired by the sloping roof and the wood and leather furniture of a modern extension
The hall just mentioned, leads into the open living room, combining living room, kitchen and dining area. Here, the sloped roof with exposed beams creates a cozy atmosphere without preventing light from entering the space. A large integrated sofa, whose design was inspired by designer Donald Judd’s furniture, helps separate the kitchen and sitting area while providing seating for the entire family in front of the TV screen.
Although compact, the kitchen is well ventilated. Its layout is concentrated around an island facing the row of low cabinets that accommodate the sink and a window overlooking the garden.
The dining area is laid out with a large custom bench, upholstered in brown leather. The wooden dining table is surrounded by several vintage style wooden chairs, offering enough room for all family members. In front of the dining area, a wooden French window opens onto the backyard, the brick patio and the pool.
