Even if you’re con­strained by a her­itage façade, you can still add a mod­ern ex­ten­sion to cre­ate the home you want.

Syd­ney home­own­ers David and Bec Smith en­vis­aged an ul­tra-con­tem­po­rary ex­ten­sion to their Fed­er­a­tion home and saw an op­por­tu­nity to em­brace the beau­ti­ful con­trast be­tween the old and new sec­tions of their home. They utilised Axon Cladding from James Hardie’s Scyon Walls range to cre­ate the stylish, can­tilevered ex­ten­sion they’d al­ways dreamed of. It’s painted Du­lux Step­ney Grey and is no­table for its hand­some 400mm spaced grooves that are rem­i­nis­cent of ver­ti­cal joint tim­ber boards. Axon Cladding is as durable as it is beau­ti­ful: it’s made from pre­mium fi­bre ce­ment that’s re­sis­tant to dam­age from mois­ture, rot ter­mites and fire.
