The Albert Park home is shaped around a central courtyard that’s concealed from the street. Robson Rak aimed to balance a sense of privacy and openness in the new insertion, through specific glazed openings. An entire side of the new extension is floor-to-ceiling glazing that opens up onto the outdoor area, while Robson Rak have made considered openings in the old stables, to welcome natural light.
Each space surrounding the central courtyard speaks to the other through natural stone, in both the stairs, the flooring and the joinery – including the kitchen bench. Together with a restrained colour palette, white walls and timber cabinetry, Robson Rak has allowed the internal and external spaces to flow into one another.
