We are in Melbourne Australia and have I found a whizz at the design of small spaces…
This 1873 home, with a heritage described as a gothic revival picturesque, has been beaten around a bit over the years. But recently it had a proper makeover from Austin Maynard Architects.
Their designs are left of center. And that is where I lie most of the time.
Since establishing his practice 15 years ago, in Melbourne, architect Andrew Maynard has been building a solid reputation for his innovative renovations. I recently discovered him through an architectural site that I page through.
The homes that he has rejuvenated are generally built on a modest budget and scale, but his designs are so full of surprises and added bonuses that they are simply mind blowing.
I think he is The Master of Design Magic and has become one of my favorite architects in my travels around the globe.
I hope you find this example of a concept rich, left of center, fun and slightly whacky home as interesting as I do.
A little Victorian home gets morphed.
No distinction between inside outside, on top or underneath!
I love kitchen sinks with a view. Particularly when you can stand on the other side and watch the washer of dishes at work.
The glassed in walkway between the buildings just happens to pass an outside pub. Outside pubs are becoming increasingly more popular with some people choosing to have a pallet bar or a log cabin shed installed that serves as a drinks station when guests are visiting. You can see some examples here of what a timber shed can do for your garden space to transform it into the social hub of the home.
Note the lovely decorative paving along one side of the house. A path of distinction. Paving can make a huge difference to a house and if you’re looking at getting some paving done in your backyard, you can see here to find out more. It’s well worth doing if you want to improve the exterior of your home! As you can see from that same image, a well-cut lawn also looks amazing with paving. Staying on top of lawns can be time-consuming, so that’s why some people prefer to contact a company like https://www.lawncare.net/service-areas/illinois/ to help them with this task.
The garden acts as a curtain. If the homeowner wanted even more space, there would be plenty of room for some storage sheds in KY. Storage sheds are rapidly growing in popularity and lots of homeowners are choosing to get them built in their garden.
