An Angled, Contemporary Extension on a 1970?s Brick House in Melbourne

A 1970's brick house in Melbourne receives an angular, contemporary extension that appears to being pulling away from the original house.

Fusion House is a project completed by Dankor Architecture that included a three-bedroom extension added onto a 1970’s brick house in Melbourne, Australia. The architects chose to create a unique structure that vastly differed from the original building with a sharp, 65-degree angle on the façade.

The angled façade stretches outward at the top creating an overhang that offers shade during the warmer months of summer, but still allowing daylight to enter during the winter.

The architects wanted to avoid using steel for the extension’s frame as it causes a great deal of pollution. They found one engineer who felt they could make the extension out of wood but he had retired. Luckily after much convincing, they got him on board to help and he created the steel-free structural drawings in a matter of weeks.
The striking angle not only creates a beautiful exterior, it’s meant to appear like it’s pulling the new extension away from the original house. Where old meets new, it looks as if the structures are being fused together, which is how the project got its name.

Oversized sliding doors disappear into the building’s façade to remove the separation between the interior and the exterior.
