CplusC Architectural Workshop has transformed a cellular and inward-looking mid-20th-century brick bungalow into an open, light-filled contemporary family home. Located in Castlecrag, Australia, the 237-sqm (2,551-sqft) home called Frankengray House was completed in 2011.
Careful planning resulted in private bedroom spaces being placed on the first floor, and public living and social spaces on the ground floor. The kitchen has become the pivotal room in the house, connecting indoor living spaces and extending out to a double-volume outdoor living space that leads down to the garden. High level glazing allows northern light into the heart of the home, and through the double height stair hall to the entry.
The house opens to a generous garden to the north, while the neighbours on three sides are visually screened by a timber pavilion, creating a peaceful oasis within a dense suburban context for the clients and their young family.
