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.
Bedrooms on the second floor a dining space and bathrooms receive a healthy dose of natural light thanks to the presence of skylights even as a neutral color scheme modern décor (with a few midcentury classics thrown in) and beautiful wooden cabinets ensure that you never feel cluttered inside this residence. For a Victorian home that sits on a lot that is just it does feel like a masterful makeover!
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.
But devoid of a gorgeous natural view and surrounded by the concrete jungle the in takes a completely different approach. Designed by Scenario Architecture it is a lowered and glazed section of the roof terrace and garden that does the trick here!
Replacing the traditional view of the landscape outside the lowered rooftop garden becomes an integral part of the open plan living space on the second level of the house. This also allows the homeowners to keep an eye on the little ones as they spend time on the rooftop terrace even while letting in a healthy dose of natural light.
The bright and cozy modern interior relies largely on neutral hues warm wooden tones and a dash of concrete to create a unique and inviting ambiance. Timeless décor pieces like the Wishbone chair sit alongside more contemporary pieces even as warm lighting and a dashing two-story gallery atrium complete this sensible and stylish transformation.
A series of walkways and bridges along with the central staircase and elevator accomplish this with ease even as a wonderful atrium further aids in creating a cheerful and airy living space.
