Bild’s Blurred House project is featured in this month’s Architecture Review Asia Pacific with a great review by Toby Horrocks:

“With the small-scale Blurred House, Ben Milbourne gets down and dirty with a contemporary suburban extension. Yet small it may be, but it isn’t short on aesthetic or material drama, transitioning between old and new in a way that avoids the usual cliches… The new work is a mutation of the California Bungalow’s own form and material. Metal roof cladding extends down to become wall cladding and the pitching roof is exploited for its sculptural and volumetric potential – angular geometry and drama is coaxed out of a traditional typology.”
