Alterations & Additions | Californian Bungalow by Pipkorn and Kilpatrick

The Look

Pipkorn and Kilpatrick pursue a boldly contemporary addition to the rear of an original Californian Bungalow, reframing its architectural heritage and providing entertaining space for a growing teenage brood.

Home to an active young family with teenage children, this house was in need of both open and intimate retreat spaces. So when the brief called for a modern extension to accommodate their growing children, designers Pipkorn & Kilpatrick were called in to expertly fuse the old with the new. Contemporary yet sensitive to its history, the revamp of this classic Californian Bungalow in Melbourne’s Elwood neighbourhood has got everything going for it.
