项目坐落于维多利亚州Barwon Heads海岸，前身是一座破旧的挡风小屋，如今，则在Adam Kane Architects事务所的设计下焕发出全新的生命力。通过对纹理色调的精心运用和对空间感的深刻理解，建筑师将原本破旧不堪的建筑转变为一栋当代住宅，摆脱了当地“垃圾场”的标签。黑色立面让这个恢复生机的小屋巧妙地融入了宁静的沿海街道。建筑原有部分外观被漆成了黑色，与精致“谷仓风格”的加建部分区别出来。醒目的黑色外观与周围茂盛的树木形成鲜明的对比，使这栋传统小屋以一种骄傲的姿态坐落在前院的中心。
Adam Kane Architects has given new life to a run-down weatherboard cottage in coastal Barwon Heads, Victoria, transforming it into a contemporary home through the careful use of textural tones and deep understanding of the sense of space. Breaking free from its local label as “the dump”, the black façade of the rejuvenated cottage subtly blends into its sleepy coastal street. The entire existing cottage façade and roof is painted deep black to achieve this effect, which delineates itself from the deliberately weathered, yet refined ‘barn style’ extension. The striking black colour stands out against the textured foliage of the surrounding landscape, enabling the heritage cottage to sit proudly centred in the front yard.

Designed for a young couple, the brief was to create a home that embodied the relaxed, coastal lifestyle of Barwon Heads. The transformation needed to allow for entertaining and to maintain a strong connection between inside and outside, old and new. Upon entering the home, the light interior is immediately present and carefully contrasted by new charcoal floorboards. Heritage features are maintained through use of the original (and now restored) lining board ceilings, as well as period skirting and architraves, which fit perfectly with the renewed tones. As you move through the existing home towards the extension via a glazed link, glimpses to the garden are revealed from either side, and a graceful connection between old and new is established.

Access to the extension is via an enclosed corridor, lined with black mottled joinery panels on walls and ceilings, and is used to conceal doorways into the rumpus, laundry, and storage areas. The ‘journey’ through this dark corridor with a lower 2.4mH ceiling (to facilitate the master bedroom mezzanine above), creates a sense of compression for the user, before a sense of release when walking towards the living room where, the line of sight is funnelled forward to where the gable opens up into the main space. It creates a wanting to find out what the house has become, to discover how old has transformed into the new.

舒适放松的氛围充盈着整个主要空间，双层高（6.5米）的美国橡木内衬倾斜天花板将房间完全打开，体量与层高变化丰富了整个室内空间，营造出强而有力的视觉体验。“故意利用压缩和释放的空间感，当居住着在家中走动时，将会收获一种独特且意想不到的体验。” 事务所创始人Adam Kane说道。倾斜的天花板内衬与住宅其他部分采用了相同的木材与V型槽衬，这种设置将室内天花板与外立面融为一体，使室外空间成为室内空间的延伸。“木制饰面模糊了室内外的界限，在定义出不同功能分区的同时，使空间感觉更加宽敞，并为居住者带来放松的家庭氛围。”
A feeling of release is then experienced as you enter the main space, where a double-height 6.5mH American Oak lined raked ceiling completely opens the room. The changes in volume and height and appreciation for the abundance of space is strong. Adam Kane, director at Adam Kane Architects, says he “deliberately played on the sense of space using compression and release, to create a unique and unexpected experience as you move through the home.” The raked ceiling is lined in the same timber v-grooved lining as the rest of the home, which wraps from internal ceilings through to external cladding. “The timber lining/ cladding also helped us blur the threshold between inside and out, delineating zones, making spaces feel more generous, and contributing to the relaxed feel of the home.”

Complementing the desaturated timber ceilings and joinery, slabs of silver travertine and burnished concrete floors are supplemented with hand-scratched solid plaster walls, in a soft, warm ‘bone’ colour. Linen sheer curtains softly balance the space, creating comfort and a sense of welcoming. “It was essential we incorporated the relaxed coastal lifestyle of Barwon Heads to this home, and we’ve done that through understanding the original space whilst giving it new life in the renovation.” In the main room, a large island bench takes centre stage and is lined in travertine. The island transforms seamlessly from kitchen bench into the dining table, through a discrete floor level change within the kitchen area. This creates an informal area to entertain and gather, and was believed a refined solution to ‘stepping’ the benchtop heights. The back-bench joinery extends into the living area, connecting the two spaces together.

The mezzanine bedroom overlooks the living space below, wrapped in the same black ventech cladding as the corridor beneath. Acting like a ‘block’ within the space. Natural light also floods the main space through 4.5mH large glass sliding doors, embracing outdoors and ultimately appreciating the outdoor beauty that coastal living has to offer. The Barwon Heads House, was an exercise in creating a family home which complimented the coastal environment, and existing weatherboard cottage. Textural, natural materials were critical to the home’s setting, as well as allowing a relaxed feeling of durability for the owners. The home’s play with light and dark, solid and void, and materiality, creates a unique experience for guests and occupants to enjoy for years to come.
