The first in a series of studies into the adaptation of vernacular Australian suburban typologies, ‘Blurred House’ is a major renovation and extension to an original 1930’s Californian bungalow in Melbourne’s inner-north. Reacting to the established convention of residential extension which prescribes a jarring juxtaposition of existing ‘old’ and introduced ‘new’ architectural elements; the ‘Blurred House’ offers an alternative proposition; that of a blurring between ‘old’ and ‘new’ to produce a hybrid. Gradually transitioning from the vernacular to the contemporary, the division of architectural elements are deliberately ambiguous, producing a unique formal and visual language.Save this picture!© Tanja MilbourneRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreStonesFranken-SchotterFlooring and Wall Tiles – Dietfurt LimestoneStonesCosentinoSurfaces – Prexury®Renders / 3D AnimationVectorworksVectorworks ArchitectViewed from the street, the house appears largely unchanged, with a small clerestory window the only hint of reconfiguration. Both internally and externally; moving through the house, new materials, spatial characters and formal language is progressively introduced. By the time of arrival in the back yard, the house has evolved into a different building; no longer recognizable from its original starting point; an architectural ‘rabbit in a hat’.

On the other hand, living spaces to the rear are progressively more open and interconnected embracing the garden and pool areas. These varied spaces respond to different ‘modes’ of living, with different volumetric, acoustic, and light qualities. Whilst these spaces are linked to a greater or lesser degree, they are not ‘open plan’ in a conventional sense, rather configured in a more nuanced distribution of distinct spaces and functions.

Distinct from both the area’s new housing and the original suburban fabric the ‘Blurred House’ is neither little red riding hood or the big bad wolf, somewhere in between.Save this picture!© Tanja MilbourneProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Alvaro Siza sings The BeatlesArticlesVideo: A Procura De PanchoArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/192396/blurred-house-bild-architecture Clipboard Architects: BiLD architecture Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Blurred House / BiLD architecture Save this picture!© Tanja Milbourne+ 14 Share CopyAbout this officeBiLD architectureOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneHousesAustraliaPublished on December 19, 2011Cite: “Blurred House / BiLD architecture” 19 Dec 2011.
