Adrien Williams

From the architect. The changing needs of a growing family triggered the complete reconfiguration and extension of their existing 1950 concrete house. They wanted a contemporary extension that would harmonize with the modern spirit of the original house. The extension fills the void created by the split level of the existing house and is capped on either side with generous glazing. The living areas of the ground floor are distributed around a central core that has become the new focal point of the house. The new master bedroom found on the the second floor is secluded from the childrens bedrooms and accessed by a glass catwalk spanning the entrance of the home.

Imoh
I love the fact that split level was used to achieve spacial experience and good vista, but I would have thought that an environmental sustainable material should have been used for the facade, say laminated wood. This I believe would speak more volume as compared to using concrete.
