Winner Residential Design – Alterations & Additions: over $500K

Designer: Junctions 90 Builder: Junctions 90
Photographer: Christine Francis Location: Windsor, VIC

Killara is an outstanding example for a residential alterations and additions project. It skillfully responds to the existing building with excellent planning and design, respecting the heritage house while touching it lightly at the frameless glass junction.

The new extension itself features a bold modernist design, with contemporary material selections and detailing – highly innovative in many ways, like the mirroring steel finishing on the outside. Junctions are resolved with much care and detail. Even services have been integrated effortlessly into the design, making them invisible. The floor-to-ceiling glazing appears almost non-existent, and adds to the excellent detailing of the seamless connection between indoor and outdoor. The beautiful outcome makes this a top winner.
