A Refurbished Australian Home that Hides a Plunge Pool

Summer is almost over in Australia, but there is still time to enjoy the amazing plunge pool in this small home.

This vintage Australian home in Melbourne has been added a brick extension by architecture studio Make Architecture. What used to be a classic Victorian cottage is now a refurbished modern house with a nice courtyard and a plunge pool in the back. This project by the Australian studio is so great that we have decided to share it with you.

As we have seen before, houses in Australia don’t follow a rigorous architecture style, having influences in the most varied styles and times. This Victorian cottage named Perimeter House received a major transformation thanks to Make Architecture. Located in a mostly industrial neighborhood in Abbotsford, the architecture studio took this inspiration to create Perimeter House’s new brick façade.

This new bricked extension on the western and northern parts of the house allowed for the kitchen and dining area to receive direct sunlight!

There is a corridor along the house that, not only double-functions as a small studio and an extra living space, but it also features sliding glass doors that connect the house with its backyard, pool and fireplace.

In the second storey you will find a nice and airy bedroom that opens to a fairly big rooftop terrace, that allows the owners to indulge in a warm Summer evening.

The white brick used on the new extension allowed to make a connection between the Victorian building and its surroundings. “The relationship of the house to its context is sympathetic and yielding as well as inventive and opportunistic,” said Make Architecture.
