beyond pre-fabrication – Melbourne

Tucked neatly behind a weatherboard house in Melbourne’s leafy north-east sits a two-story modular extension designed and built by Australian pre-fabrication business Modscape.
In need of extra space for their growing family, the clients decided to employ a modular solution and extend their home rather than move. The extension is open, filled with natural light and beautifully compliments its leafy suburban location.
A new double-height entrance space has been created in the middle of the house providing a clean separation between existing and new. Upon entering through the front door, your eye is drawn up to the circular skylight which casts directed light to the open stairs below. To accommodate for the sloping site, the extension is terraced down the block with a slight change in levels between the original house.
Just beyond the new entrance foyer is the heart of the home – a large kitchen. From the outset, the clients’ brief revolved around this space with the arrangement, layout and finishes carefully considered. With ample storage space provided in the butler’s pantry, the kitchen is big enough for the whole family to cook, gather and socialize. The heroes of the space are the large floor-to-ceiling windows that capture clear vistas into the beautifully landscaped backyard and surrounding trees.
