Australian design studio Adam Kane Architects introduces a look at the new and renovated cottage known as the Barwon Heads House. It is connected to a barn-style extension through the glazed link. The home design is a contemporary aesthetic that is described as a “relaxed, coastal lifestyle.” At a first glance, it has a minimal design language with monochrome contrasts. It is entirely black on the exterior and is lightened up with the silver-grey tonal weathered wooden planks.
It plays with the idea of contrast in the interiors as it pushes space through compression and release with compartmentalized three bedrooms and a bathroom. The studio states, “Access to the extension is via an enclosed corridor, lined with black mottled joinery panels on walls and ceilings, and is used to conceal doorways into the rumpus, laundry and storage areas.”
