Julia's idea book
No bath in shower? Add a stool or bench
Books and nic-nacs
Books and light
Books, fire, light
Western light (northern hemisphere) onto reading area
Light onto the window seat
Window seat and cupboards in kids room
Lots of windows and a bookshelf
Great light and view, natural woods. Lovely bathroom.
Books, windows, angle roof with high display shelf, and it's a small space! Interesting.
What an intriguing idea... a secret room!
Narrow rooms can work with lots of natural light, a view and an open fire. Good lighting too.
What a cute nook
Sliding doors with opaque glass panels allow privacy for bedroom or connection with living area.
Like the way the built in incorporates the television, books and storage.
Built in with TV, books in a small area
Desk, TV, books, natural light through windows.
Not quite cosy and comfy enough for me... and not enough natural light, but a bright and functional space.
I do rather like trusses - so much natural light and adds height.
Interesting the way the stairs enter at the centre of this narrow room...
Louvred terrace manages sunlight
Louvres manage sunlight
Private deck, lanterns
Vines for privacy (Shade in summer, colour in autumn, light in winter)
Window seat and window on stairwell
Light and colourful
Rear addition to bungalow
New master bedroom in rear addition to bungalow
Make the front porch bigger (this is a bit too big) - note it looks like it either didn't have a front porch or it has been extended to be wider.
Grand scale but noting the different angles on the roof - modern but sympathetic to traditional structure
This is a side add on so not quite the same but noting the way the roof angles work - modern but consistent with the existing style of house
What a striking bright but warm house. Interesting.
Interested in the angles on the side roof around to the right.
Addition to a bungalow with corner windows and lots of interesting looking shapes and places
The objective of this renovation project was to almost double the livable space without increasing the building footprint and to develop an exterior aesthetic in harmony with the context of the historic neighborhood.
I'm interested in how the louvred pergola plays with light... I've saved a couple of other photos from this project on separate searches. Worth looking at whole project!
One sided second story
Modern layered alongside the original
Modern addition on older home
I'm not sure what I think about the style but I note they have added a modern back on a little ol' house. I also note the placement of walls possibly to provide privacy?
big house, bit top story... but it doesn't seem to increase the footprint of the house.
Bungalow addition all in existing style. Noting bay and other windows
Painted cupboard background
Small but workable. Includes island bench
