Nestled in the historic Cambridge neighborhood of the homeowners of this Georgian revival home wished for a light-filled and modern abode that allowed them to showcase their vast art collection without altering the existing structure dramatically. Designed by Stern McCafferty the renewed and revamped residence accomplishes this by embracing a Cor-Ten steel and glass extension!
Large windows a remnant of the industrial heritage of the building bring in a flood of natural light giving the open living area kitchen and dining space a cheerful and breezy appeal. While the living space has an air of urban contemporary elegance it is the kitchen that adds the distinct industrial flavor with its stainless steel sink workstation and other metallic elements.
Designed by Wunschhaus Architektur and spread across 411 square meters the 3-story house has a wonderful indoor-outdoor interplay thanks to the extensive use of sweeping glass walls and large glass doors. While the creation of a light-filled interior was one of the prime objectives here the homeowners also wanted an interior that encouraged interaction between family members with each space flowing into the next.
Custom chairs and cool industrial lighting fixtures complete the impressive makeover. Most log cabins and mountain retreats borrow extensively from local architectural principles and design quirks to create a stylish relaxing and unique environment.
The connection with water at the seems all too natural with the backyard of this luxurious home opening up towards a lovely canal adding to the brilliant natural landscape that overwhelms you with its beauty.
The top floor contains the master suite with the bedroom featuring large sliding windows and shutters on three sides. This ensures that every room inside this Sydney home enjoys the best possible view of the vivacious garden.
While the name of the house might be a bit misleading (at this is definitely not a little home by any stretch of the imagination) it still is a makeover that makes clever use of every inch of square footage on offer.
