Hampton House II | Kennedy Nolan Architects

Hampton House II, by Melbourne based Kennedy Nolan Architects, is clearly inspired by the designs of California modernist architects such as Richard Neutra and Craig Ellwood

An open plan extension to an original 1938 red brick home in Hampton, Australia, it features a neutral palette of exposed beams, painted white brick and travertine tiles, together with full height sliding door partitions between spaces and sliding glass doors opening to the exterior.

A central corridor has been added to the back of the house, with a study/guest bedroom on one end and a living room at the other. Though visually connected and open, at the same time these spaces feel distinctly separate and intimate.
