Bijl Architecture has designed a modern extension for the ‘Lacuna House’, that’s located in Sydney, Australia.

The house received an updated interior that blends in with the new extension, creating a haven away from a busy work life, and a safe home in which to raise children.

Stepping inside, and off the hallway from the front door, is a bedroom that looks out onto the street, while the bedroom was extended to include an ensuite bathroom and walk in robe.

Also located off the hallway is a new central library room, that serves as a TV and playroom, that can transform into a media and reading room as children grow and mature.

A combined mudroom and laundry provides a functional space for the family to store coats and shoes, and have a separate place to do their laundry.

At the end of the hallway, the home opens up into a large dining, kitchen, and living room.

Both the kitchen and the living room open to the patio that has an outdoor kitchen, a covered dining area, and space for a couple of comfy outdoor chairs. Timber slats help to provide privacy from the neighbors.
