A Curved Corner Softens The Space Inside This Home Extension

Australian architecture firm Bryant Alsop has shared photos of a home remodel they completed for a run-down home in Victoria, that includes a new contemporary addition with a curved wall.

From the front of the home, there’s a glimpse of the new addition that’s located at the rear of the home.

The addition has been built using light brick which contrasts the dark windows and their black frames.

The addition has also been designed so that there’s a somewhat hidden outdoor space furnished with a wood bench.

Here, you can see how the new addition connects with the original red brick home, as well as small windows that run between curved sections of the exterior.

Inside, there’s the living room which is filled with natural light from the windows that curve around the addition. The wood ceiling complements the wood floor and floating shelves, softening the interior. The living room also includes a fireplace with a hearth that travels along the wall and includes a storage cabinet.
