Before & After – A Modern Remodel For A 1970’s Brick House

Fabric Architecture has completed the modern remodel of a 1970’s red brick Australian classic which had come to the end of its life.

Located in Shelly Beach, the original house had a carport at the front. When talking about the updated facade, the architects mention, “The design consists of a low scale private street frontage that takes from the simplicity of the new Japanese aesthetic.”

At the rear of the home, an expansive yard and small building received a double-height, light-filled space that incorporates a large “pop up” into the existing core of the home where the stand-alone kitchen pod and dining area are situated.

The covered entryway to the home is sandwiched between the wood slat wall and the new gray brick wall, while inside, it opens to a hallway with wood floors and striking black and red artwork.
