Steffen Welsch Architects Pty Ltd
Continuum is a revival of a late modernist home in suburban Doncaster. It is a ‘departure with the aim of continuity’, based on the paradigm that any new design is a development of a pre-existing condition, making redundant the question ‘to blend in or contrast?’
In our practice we work to principles of ‘simple moves’ and economy: no more, or less, than is necessary to achieve our program. This took the “Eco box on the back” off the table and we ‘finished the job’, rather than ‘started from scratch’.
