It’s Always Cloudy At This House

Located in Melbourne, Australia an addition to a 100 year old existing home is a unique design, to say the least.

The architectural firm McBride Charles Ryan is behind the eye-catching Cloud House.

The built on portion is a stark contrast from the existing traditional house, which greets the street with a classical white, Edwardian style.

The view in the back, however, is anything but ordinary.

Rolling into the backyard, the cloud structure creates a living space quite like no other. The huge cloud shaped glass window intensifies the effect and adds to the airy, open feeling. Almost as if on exhibit, a contemporary red kitchen, dining and lounge areas look out to an L-shaped pool.

Watching a rainstorm from this window would be pretty incredible. The view on a sunny day looks neat, too.

The addition’s positioning gives an energy saving advantage, as the structure faces south. This bridles the northern sunlight and lets it perfectly filter into the living space. The arrangement and layout also facilitates efficient cross ventilation.

The red cabinetry block is situated to provide privacy while allowing natural light through the rest of the house.

Entering from the front, a walk down a long, posh looking hallway leads to the addition.

And no doubt it also leads to some conversation for those who are seeing it for the first time.

Mixing in many styles in one residence, the Cloud House adds artistic elements without taking itself too seriously.
