Though Curbed has taken a look at inventive Australian pads where an "all business" front facade hides an architectural party in the back—usually in the form of a compact, modular, beautiful addition—the Aussies don't have a monopoly on this kind of design solution. Case in point: this double-height extension in Rotterdam by local architect Antonia Reif, founder of Antonia Reif Architectuur. To expand a 1960s bungalow on the outskirts of Rotterdam—the second-largest Dutch city and home to some pretty spectacular architecture of its own—Reif created a discreet extension that isn't visible from the street but allows the homeowners a light-filled space that accommodates their growing family.
