Porebski Architects has transformed an 1882 workers cottage into a contemporary home in the heart of Leichhardt, Australia. The Leichhardt house is a perfect blend of style, comfort, and functionality, with a focus on open-plan living and indoor-outdoor connections.
The design takes advantage of the fall across the site to create a variety of volumes as you meander from old to new.
The new extension features exposed timber beams, off-form concrete and stone that features as a separating wall between the kitchen and family room.
The use of high-quality materials and innovative building techniques including feature skylights over the kitchen and family room, large windows that allow an abundance of natural light to enter the space, while cross-ventilation helps to reduce the need for air conditioning.
The design of the Leichhardt Park House represents a high standard in modern living, offering a harmonious balance between functionality, comfort, and aesthetics.
