This video shows Australian architect Matt Gibson's zinc-clad extension of an Edwardian Melbourne home.
The single storey extension named Shadow House provides new living spaces, a guest bedroom and garage for the house in Melbourne's Elsternwick Heritage area.
A 1980s extension was cleared away to make room for the addition, which takes its design cues from the early 20th century villas surrounding it.
While Gibson borrowed some features from these historic houses ? including the steep hipped roof ? he also used dark zinc cladding to deliberately distinguish it from the brickwork of the existing property.
