The presence of this ply clad addition saves space helps in better organization of the rest of the house and also delineates the kids’ playroom from the living area without the use of additional walls.
The color scheme in the living area is kept largely neutral with the warm wooden accents of the kitchen adding textural and visual contrast. The bedrooms and kids’ spaces also use a similar muted backdrop with décor and accessories ushering in curated splashes of color. Practical elegant and resourceful this modern renovation project makes the most of what is on offer!
Melbourne seems to be an absolute hotbed for home renovation projects in recent times and today we have another smart and sensible home makeover from the Fitzroy North suburb of the bustling city. Originally built as a modest workers cottage in the 1980s this abode was given a modern upgrade to meet the needs of a young family.
The result: the dingy dark interior was transformed into a bright and beautiful setting. As is the norm these days the home has a new rear extension that flows into the backyard as the Nest Architects completely revamped the ambiance of this small family residence.
This fashions a private street façade even as the rear of the home opens up toward some spectacular views. The clean straight lines of the home offer a contemporary counterpoint while blending in beautifully with the scenery.
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.
Designed by Boom Town every room inspires you with an array of vivacious colors exquisite textures and a snug ambiance that is never lost despite the creatively playful touches. Despite the refined makeover of the interior much of the original charm of the house from the late 1930s is preserved by leaving the exterior largely unchanged.
