LAMA Architects recently completed an extension for a Romanian home dubbed 'G3 House.' While extensions are a great way to add extra space to an existing home, it can be difficult to blend old architecture with new construction. This home demonstrates how architects can combine the old and the new in a seamless way.

The G3 House is a recently completed home located in Otopeni, Romania. Although the home feature a traditional design, the owners wanted the new space to feel distinctly modern. As a result, the architects opted for a modern reinterpretation of a traditional pitched-roof home. This feat was achieved by drawing on the traditional of origami to create an angular covered terrace. The design ultimately creates dialogue between the two volumes for a seamless transition between past and present.
