Unbelievable modern transformation in South Yarra

South Yarra Residence-01-1 Kindesign

South Yarra Residence is a modern addition and remodel by architecture studio Nixon Tulloch Fortey in South Yarra, Australia. If you notice in the last picture, the front of the Victorian home has been historically preserved in keeping with the surrounding neighborhood. The interior features modern updates with splashes of bold colors throughout. The back of the house has been completely modernized and looks fabulous with the large expanse of glass that helps blur the boundaries between the outdoors and in. What do you think of this remodel, would you have left the original front facade or would you have updated it to match the rear facade?

It’s unbelievable all right; it’s unbelievable how hideously cold and industrial this geometric eyesore is. This could probably win an “ugliest home contest”. It deserves a wrecking ball. But it almost looks like the wrecking ball would shatter upon impact with some of those industrial concrete walls. Maybe a nuke would be a faster way to remedy this mistake of terrible taste.
