Working around both the historical and solar limitations of the site Nic Owen Architects revamped the interior of the home completely by altering its floor plan and also added a modern rear extension.
Designed to meet the growing needs of a family with 2 children the extended and altered house now features 4 bedrooms 2 bathrooms a gorgeous study and of course an open plan living area on the lower level.
While it is stone that shapes the home on the outside the interior presents a more curated look with traditional elements meeting modern ergonomics. Exposed timber surfaces in the family room and bedrooms usher in inviting warmth while neutral hues coupled with bright accents shape the living area.
This fabulous and fashionable penthouse in Belgium is a more appropriate representative of the modern eclectic style that brings together various styles in a refined and refreshing fashion without leading to clutter. Located on the top level of a three-story building this fabulous home was previously a vacant office space that was revamped and transformed dramatically by DIFT.
This remarkable contemporary makeover in takes the latter route as an old Victorian brickmaking factory on was converted into a fabulous multi-level residence that combines amazing textural contrast with refined urban living.
Terraced houses from the Victorian and Edwardian era are something of a common occurrence in reclusive inner city suburbs across Australia and when viewed from the outside seems absolutely no different.
As is the case with most contemporary homes these days the living areas on the lower level and the bedrooms on top floor open up toward a large deck complete with a pool and an outdoor dining space. Glossy finishes in the kitchen and bathroom a plush Togo Sofa in the living room and a curated splash of color in the dining room complete a refined and relaxing residence.
