With a growing family, the owners of Crib and Chock House wanted to extend the residence located in Coburg, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. The expansion project was realized by Windust Architects x Interiors . Given that the owners wanted to keep the fig tree next to the house, an extension to the rear of the site was not possible.

The architects decided to make the expansion around the tree, simultaneously directing the living areas to the north. The requirements of the project have included a new kitchen, bathroom, ensuite, dining and living room.

The expansion also included an “outside room”, with the purpose of connecting harmoniously the inner and outdoor areas. The “Crib & Chock” name resulted from the notched timber work above the outside room, inspired by Japanese timber jointing. The “crib” being the lower beam into which transverse angled battens would sit. The “Chock” beams slide over the battens to secure everything in place.”
