A contemporary renovation to a traditional home

Modern takes on traditional in this Port Melbourne renovation by Austin Design Associates. No that's not right. There's no "taking on", no confrontation, no design conflict with this new addition.

The small courtyard, by landscape designer Nathan Burkett (you may have caught a glimpse of it here), connects seamlessly with indoor spaces. Strong modern lines, practicality and beauty.
