Entries in renovation (100)
A sad and sorry 1960s mid-terrace building in Finsbury Park, London has had new life breathed into it by architectural studio Archmongers. By knocking through the internal walls and creating a glass and timber extension the ground floor layout is more connected and so much brighter. I love the use of glass bricks, terrazzo, tiles, rubber and plywood, even the quirky "brain-coloured" tile and clock on the facade. Tired and dated is now energetic and creative.
Clean contemporary lines with an emphasis on texture and finishes. Timber plays a predominant part in the scheme punctuated with black accents. Melbourne-based interior design firm Studio Tate have renovated this Prahran home creating a sleek, chic but ultimately family friendly home.
A classic worker's cottage façade with a contemporary extension behind. Another great example of how Australians like to live - a desirable inner city suburb close to all the action, a small but charming historical property, a local council that values the preservation of the streetscape and that overwhelming Aussie desire for open plan living with seamless integration of inside and out.
