With an extensive variety of combinations, fibres and styles of pile, the carpets of today are constantly improving. Whether we’re looking to add a textural elegance a bedroom, study or living space, or incorporate a more subdued feel with a minimal loop pile, carpet is an essential element underfoot in any home.

    The design is pared back to allow the raw materials to speak for themselves. Large timber joists with exposed steel and oversized aluminium sliding doors create some seriously large-scale volume, while the liberal use of concrete in the pool house against the red cedar pergola structure gives the house a strength and definition.

    Reading as two distinct yet harmonious architectural styles, the open-plan addition cleverly captures a lightness that works in contrast to the ornate bungalow. The straight lines of the outside landscaping enhances the sense of space inside the extension while the pool cavity by Kate Patterson Landscapes acts like a central sculptural feature, where silver granite tiles spill over to play on form and function.

    Safe to say, the spirit of the house has been revived and updated thanks to its latest addition. Modern in mood, this second living area marries something old with something new to create something better altogether. Bring on the Summer pool parties.
