Victorian modern 

When Victorian and modern come together in one home to create something pretty awesome. To be frank, I am so in love with all the woodwork in the old part of the house I could not care less what is going on in the rest. I mean, look at the photo above! AH MAH GAWD!!!

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!"

Modernising a typical Amsterdam apartment

Dutch interior designer Robert Kolenik took what he described as a typical small Amsterdam apartment and turned it into a luxurious modern space in neutral tones that appears much larger than it is. As part of his concept, the first thing that interior designer Robert Kolenik did was to design a large wall unit to link together all the spaces in the apartment naturally. In narrower or smaller spaces, most people tend to use smaller pieces of furniture. 'I do the opposite. By putting in larger pieces, I emphasise a sense of spaciousness in the home. The floating block in dark oak creates a line in the apartment that visually enlarges the space.' Robert then added in a FOUR METRE LONG sofa (by Minotti) which offers tons of seating and while very long, still keeps the space very open. Those of you with small spaces, take note!

A weekend home with ocean views

With views like this who cares what the house looks like?! But when it's as fabulous as this - BONUS! An interior landscape is created which merges into the surrounding external landscape. Materials and colours are drawn from the local environment and counterbalance the intense blue ocean hues. Natural timbers, local stone, textures tiles and muted stones are selected to mimic the surrounds. Selected paint and tile colours reflect the deep oranges and reds found in the local stone and local flora. The house is grand in scale, yet the spaces are relaxed yet sophisticated, modular and flexible. The balanced selection of imported and local furniture, lighting and materials celebrates the quality of local design within a global design environment. By FMD Architects.
