Hornby Street, Windsor
The Hornby Residence is a Victorian house with a modern extension. The client requested an additional level to their house and also the refurbishment to their existing living space as well. After communicating and understanding their intentions, Warren Lee Architecture were able to reinvent the traditional Victorian Brick House.
The contrasting materiality of Brick and corrugated Iron juxtapose with each other generating an architectural conversation between the old and the new. The full height glazing upstairs connecting the bedroom and terrace. It allows sunlight to fully penetrate the room but it also exaggerates the views to the park across the road, puling the landscape condition into the residence.
