The is a Grade II listed Georgian house that went through a series of poorly planned additions and renovations for the last 6 decades leaving it a dreary and unwelcoming home. The task of turning it into a bright modern family home fell to Cullinan Studio who employed a cubic glass structure to get the job done.
With the husband being a chef and food writer the presence of a top-notch spacious kitchen for TV productions was an absolute must while another work area next to it hides all the work-related files and serves as a connectivity center.
Sometimes simplicity simply trumps all else when it comes to design! This beautiful single-family contemporary home in Australia proves precisely this as it turns to the tried and tested ‘cubic form’ to transform a large barren sloping site into the perfect lot for an inviting modern residence.
The lower level also contains the master bedroom closet and bathroom while the top level houses additional private spaces an amazing playroom with a custom climbing wall a nursery and a game room that was previously the bell tower!
Designed by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects this 160-acre homestead was abandoned for over three decades before its current owners turned the lot into a hub for a healthy and sustainable lifestyle that puts nature in pole position. Nestled in the picturesque the design of the house draws its inspiration from the classic barn structure.
Exposed brick walls in the kitchen and dining area complement the contemporary shelves and cabinets beautifully even as the living area effortlessly extends into the central courtyard. Unique decor laced with vintage accessories and smart skylights turn the conversion into a timeless delight!
But the smart renovation went beyond just the rear addition as the interior was completely altered to give the classic home a new lease on life. Despite the new structure in glass steel and timber the front façade of the heritage home was left largely untouched in order to preserve its rich history.
