Richmond House by Newline Design

Newline Design have completed a contemporary addition to a family home, located in Richmond, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. It acts as relief , a point where you can appreciate the original fabric and understand that to live on, it needs new life which comes by way of the new extension. On a corner allotment with typical multiple additions, the task was to create a new family home with work, living and play areas and to facilitate art. Opening walls and creating vistas internally, making connections from kitchen to living to dining to study, all to connect to the outside, was critical. Richmond is lavish, open, warm, calm, intelligent and serene. The one I convinced the client to buy was all about – “blue sky”. The addition needed to respect the location and the original structure but also had to introduce new areas, which would be far more fluid and flexible than the traditional period stock would normally allow.
