Brunswick House by Adam Kane Architects

Melbourne-based Adam Kane Architects has expanded an existing Californian Bungalow, harmoniously uniting the home’s two iterations through subtleties and a muted tonality of whites, greys, and timber boards. Brunswick House is founded on the basic principles of lightness and an engagement with its landscape. It reaches deeper into the site and opening to the North to create a series of meaningful connections between inside and out. A considered approach sees the old flow effortlessly into the new with shared materiality and a matched process to proportion and scale. A sense of timelessness was essential to its continued relevance and allowed the residence to endure gracefully over time.

The new volumes to the rear speak to a thoughtful restraint and see two simple yet striking rectilinear forms stack on top of one another. The new volumes slowly pivot away from one another, carving out an organically covered area below the upper form projects overhead. In Brunswick House, there is an apparent dedication to the purity of its parts and the avoidance of ornamentation. Through rigour and refinement, a sense of calm emerges. It is a sanctuary in waiting. A comforting space that will undoubtedly help a growing family thrive.

Creating a home filled with natural light, the architects applied minimal sensibility to the interior, accentuating its spaciousness. The airiness of the internal experience is emphasised by framed openings that encourage the surrounding curated garden landscape to conjure themselves as living artworks, shifting in colour and vibrancy throughout the year. While offering a place of protection and privacy, Brunswick House is contrastingly light and feels outwardly connected, blending effortlessly with nature.
