I have always loved that first image. I posted it way back here. It’s Tregoning House at Avalon Beach, Sydney by architect Daniel Raymond. The sad thing is that for ages it was the only glimpse of the large barn like extension that I could find. Somehow I just knew that I would love the rest of the house. Raymond is now a director, along with Thomas Martin, of Rama Architects and it’s there my wish was granted. More photos!!

I’m chasing the dream in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick where a warehouse conversion with separate studio at the rear has caught my eye. The unimposing gray facade provides no clues as to the industrial meets textural, monochrome with a hint of coastal interior. Shouldn’t work you’d think but what could have been a stark interior is warm and welcoming. Bonus is if I buy it you can come visit and stay in the cute as a button studio. Link here while it lasts.
If you like your warehouse conversion more traditional, all industrial features,beams and brick then this one is for you. I’m real estate scrolling in Leichhardt just one suburb over from our last house. Love the central atrium with its outdoor shower (or is that just a piece of art?), the bathtub and all that glass. The architect is Petar Danicic. So having seen the two different warehouses which one is your favourite. Link here while it lasts.
A colour palette that mixes dark and moody black with rich pinks and blues, an industrial edge with exposed brick and pipes, old married with new. It’s the recipe for a bold apartment by Chicago-based interior designer Lauren Svenstrup of Studio Sven. She calls it Castle Black. I call it vintage glam.
I came across this project by architecture and design studio Stewart-Schafer and was mesmerized by the kitchen and that stunning marble countertop and backsplash. Also, dying over how the sink is inset into that raised section. !!! Then I learned this was a complete gut renovation when I came across more info on this project and was blown away at the amount of work that went into this project. Beautiful on the inside with a killer rooftop view outside.
Proof of just how much of a gut renovation this was…
