Fifty Fifty House

This extension is partly inspired by the original 1950s suburban home and partly by the Case Study houses of the same decade. The original house is characteristic of the area: it’s detached, has a gabled roof, red brick walls, white fenestration and stepped corbels.

These charms have been retained and honoured with a contemporary interpretation. The side extension mirrors the original house, the mirror line marked by a zip of projecting white bricks. Either side of this line is the chimney in true facsimile. Thereafter things get distorted as the stepped corbel brickwork is magnified through the architectural looking glass. To the rear, the extension appears as a neutral field of white blade walls supporting a thin, flat roof.

The original house is barely veiled, appearing almost untouched. These new walls create shady thresholds for seating, dining and reclining, concealing new bedrooms and living quarters in their protective shade.
