Starting from a mid-20th century brick bungalow, creative architects can create stunning contemporary homes. The Castlecrag Residence proves how the outdated look of a house can be transformed into a welcoming, open collection of spaces given as example for future residential transformation projects. Located in a harbor area of Sydney, Australia, the beautiful residence underwent this transformation thanks to Darlington-based CplusC Architectural Workshop.
Although the house is placed in a crowded suburban area, privacy was achieved by installing a timber pavilion separating the residential indoor/outdoor space from neighboring buildings. A social ground floor was opened towards the garden and composed of spaces filled with natural light. Acting as the main space, the modern kitchen was given direct access to an outdoor dining space connecting interiors to the back garden via spotted gum decking. The upstairs bedroom area shelters the young family from everyday stress, while the golden, warm wood used throughout extends this comforting feeling in all zones proudly showcased by this exquisite contemporary residence.
