'Juxtahouse' ~ A Striking Contrast of Old and New

Juxtaposition can be defined as taking two objects, themes, or materials and combining them or placing them together to create a striking contrast. A design principle beautifully executed by Curious Practice Architects in the total transformation of this 1940's home.

The original three-bedroom property has been strikingly renovated throughout with a classic bullnose verandah, soaring 3.1m ceilings, and elegant fretwork retained as reminders of the past. Sitting alongside is a contemporary two-storey structure fronted by the garage and extending the home with a bright lounge room and upper-level parents' suite featuring a cathedral-ceilinged bedroom and ensuite. A deck extends the home at the rear kept beautifully private by a bamboo fringed garden with a mineral plunge pool a decadent addition.

A simple but brilliant exercise in big impact living, noteworthy appointments in this stunning home include under floor heating, ducted air-conditioning, plantation shutters, skylights with solar powered blinds, custom cabinetry, a gas fireplace, S-fold sheer drapes, travertine paving, and security screens and cameras.

With the Barn Café on your doorstep, Adamstown Public school just 300m away and the beach, city and Westfield all a short dash by car, the fabulous location ticks the final box.
