Modern extension by Heartly

Heartly designed and monitored the transformation of this dilapidated cottage into a much loved and admired family home. Careful consideration of flow and use of space was paramount to the success of this project on a small inner suburban Melbourne block.

It's what Australian architects and interior designers do so well. Take a small, older home with confused layout. Design a modern extension to create the much sort after open-plan, family living yet, importantly, retain the presence of the original home within the streetscape. And may I just say "Hello bike room!"

The work space desk area is lovely and I am wondering if those stacks are housing wine bottle behind wall or wall opposite the desk; what are they? Seems lots.

Stunning. I love every single corner of this house. Designed to be timeless for decades to come. Decluttered, practical, even bathroom faucet is to die for. Australian home design has no real competition. Australian homes are excelent example of great home design.
