St.Kilda Residence
Victoria

The brief - an element of surprise.

This deceptively small, Victorian cottage unfolds into an unexpectedly spacious, four bedroom family home. Light and storage are incorporated in thoughtful and original ways. Both bathrooms have large, distinct windows that transport you into endless skies. An internal window, showing the staircase treads, links the house’s two levels and gives the staircase its own personality (along with red numbered tiles) that children enjoy as a magical space for puppet shows and peeping on grown ups below. Storage is cleverly conceived in each room. Walk-through bookshelves create the living room’s character. A butler’s hatch joins the staircase pantry to the kitchen. The kitchen’s island bench conceals a toy stash and seating nook. Splashes of colour and texture punctuate the minimalist palette. Playful touches of red appear throughout. Yellow dot hooks skip across a bathroom wall. Original brickwork adds a sense of history and warmth.
