South Melbourne

Classic minimalist

This architecturally renovated home combined a historic frontage with a modern rear courtyard and balcony. The front garden was designed and constructed to fit in with the heritage of the building, and included bluestone paving and a front fence built to specific council regulations. In a change of pace the rear courtyard and balcony were created in a minimal modern style—here limestone paving and in-situ concrete benches were brought to life by strategically placed bamboo and lighting.
