The Belle Project involved the renovation of a 1970s brick veneer suburban home with the brief seeking to connect the existing building more effectively with its surroundings.

Though in immaculate condition, the existing house was showing its age through the way it interfaced with the outdoors. In conjunction with refreshing the existing bedrooms and reconfiguration and refurbishment of the bathrooms, the key driver for Inbetween Architecture was to create a comfortable connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces for dining and entertaining that could be used all year round. 

A covered alfresco area had previously been added to the original house, but with the only connection being an extended journey through the existing living room, the set-up was less than ideal for frequent mid-week BBQ dinners and entertaining alike.  

The additional space required was modest, but the challenge lay with conceptualising the spaces in a way that would sit comfortably within the context and with the very familiar, yet often underestimated and poorly approached suburban typology. 

The renovated house achieves its brief with the use of glazed doors and windows from the Archetto Series and Azione Series by BINQ.
