The task of altering this old warehouse and its existing ambiance and interior spatial arrangement fell to Chris Dyson Architects who combined the past and the present of the discarded structure to give it a new lease of life.
An additional feature at this elegant home is the wonderful presence of clerestory windows which bring in a flood of natural light and create a cheerful atmosphere. Materials such as native cut stone copper and western red cedar succeed in giving the beautiful residence a timeless appeal despite its more modern silhouette.
It is only once you step inside that you notice a subtle change in style. The new extension and the changes to the interior were crafted to blend in with the existing structure as a muted color scheme and cozy wooden surfaces give the revitalized residence a snug relaxing ambiance.
Reconfiguring it into three large luxury units meant the addition of a copper clad box at roof level to extend the available living area without actually disturbing the original style and flair of the building. Another fascinating feature is the use of refurbished Crittall factory windows which usher in the industrial vibe of the original edifice.
But the beautiful private residence in Australia takes a different approach to space maximization as it arranges spaces in a series of internal steps to not just create the impression of a breezy cheerful home but also to make the most of the city views on offer. Designed by Tim Stewart Architects this modern home is all about organizational skill and meticulous planning!
