The Binary House project began as a 1960’s yellow brick bungalow in Woolooware, Sydney, Australia, that was transformed by Christopher Polly Architect to include a dramatic, pavilion-like addition in the back. While the original house keeps its private front character, the back opens up and expands into the green yard to elevate the homeowners’ outdoor lifestyle.
The original home contains bedrooms and service areas but with newly installed vaulted skylights that visually enlarge the spaces. The pavilion features a double height living room with an adjacent dining room and kitchen with an open sitting room above. The addition connects to the bungalow by way of a hallway that continues through to the front door. Newly formed courtyards between both structures provide additional natural light and ventilation. Glass walls disappear, expanding the open living space into the backyard.
The inner decor is done with a lot of concrete, plywood, blackened metal and matte stone surfaces. Much glass brings a modern feel to the spaces, and leather, various types of fabric and faux fur are added for a texture and interest. The furniture is contemporary and comfortable, in simple colors. take a look at this amazing home below!
