An Architect’s Own Humble Renovation and Extension - An Architect's Home Ep14

The Design Emotive
Sometimes you don't need to do much to have a huge impact, and the home of Melbourne architect John Liu of Inbetween Architecture is a testament to that idea. Their 1970s home had great bones, plenty of natural light, and a fantastic north-facing backyard, but his family was beginning to outgrow the space. After a year of finding the right design, a new main bedroom suite was really all that was needed, with a new entry and corridor to connect the new with the old. The entry and corridor space is the hero of the home, with John including his cultural heritage of been born and raised in Taiwan with Japanese rituals. This entry space gave John, his family and guests a place to take off shoes before entering, as well as a place to store bicycles, scooters and other larger items. The corridor has a built-in bench seat that overlooks and connects with the backyard, and provides a sunny place where you will often find John working, taking phone calls, having a cup of coffee and his children drawing. This corridor is not just a corridor, it's a space to stop, it's a place to relax. John wanted to explore the idea of the entry and corridor being more than just a place you walk through.
