Exceptional Building Extensions: Australia’s Cloud House

When thinking about building extensions for your Sevenoaks home you will undoubtedly need some inspiration. To kick-start those creative juices, take a look at a few of the worlds’ most unusual or sought after extensions and alterations. One particular home in Melbourne, Australia has certainly turned heads with its outrageous yet exceptional building extension – the cloud – or at least that’s what many are calling it.

A young couple with two young children decided that their old home, older than 100 years, needed a revamp. Their chosen architect and builders certainly made the family’s dreams of living in the clouds come to life by creating a fun extension that overlooks the swimming pool. While the home has undergone a variety of building extensions over the years, nothing can beat this change which was made in 2012. The front of the house that faces the street remains the same, with all of the alterations out back being specifically for the enjoyment of the family. In fact, visitors can only see the cloud effect if they are actually inside the home. This home and its unique design have been described as the Olympics of architecture, and we have to agree!

The cloud shape design houses a bright red kitchen and modern living area which provides the elegant and upmarket appeal of a city boutique hotel. The space is part-dining room and part conservatory which gives it a social edge that the family is said to thoroughly enjoy.

The childlike cloud design has certainly wowed family, friends and neighbours and whether the family and guests are enjoying the pool or the interior of the new building extension, a seamless indoor-outdoor zone of exceptional design is noted.
