REUSE HOUSE, WEMBLEY WA
Architect: X-Space Architects

“The client first came to us with a rather tired and character-less, post-war style home with intentions to renovate. We convinced the client to approach the renovation differently in order to recognize and celebrate the original home in a completely different way beyond their imaginings, whilst still providing a renovation that aligned with their functional wants and needs.” - Director of X-Space Architects Orlando Catenacci.
The principles of reuse or recycling both existing materials from the original home, together with recycled materials from other projects, was the core theme to give a character-less home its character. Components of the original home that were demolished have been cleaned-up or retreated and reused in the new pavilion additions in the home.
X-Space Architects worked closely with Cosh Living on the interior styling and loose furnishings for the project. Together we selected furniture with a neutral and timeless palette that would create a relaxed aesthetic and work cohesively with the style of architecture that was prominent within the home.
