The Thornbury House in Melbourne  is a traditional dwelling with a contemporary extension. The owners are a family who live in an area with many early century homes. They decided to keep some of the old features of the house while adding a modern aesthetic.

Mesh Design created the new addition with sustainability in mind. The exterior is entirely wrapped in timber, and looks very natural and coquette. “The north facing design encompasses the kitchen as the hub, with a large island bench plus more formal dining area and has copious natural light. The living area to the east protected from the sun and the play area for our small children with a recessed fish tank in the wall surrounded by hidden storage cupboards.”
