The heart of the apartment should be the interior kitchen with a family bathroom.

The challenge was the very limited area of the apartment, so that a maximum of space was created using all the design means such as mirrors, slidings and folding doors. Immediately after completion of the planning, another child was approaching.

This fact could also be taken into account by the creation of a small but charming second children’s room.

The design challenge was above all to visually connect the kitchen with the living room and to plan it spatially compactly. This was implemented by a dark parquet floor and a variety of precisely planned and coordinated fittings from kitchen to many different built-in furniture.

The Woodpeckers house sits on a low brick plinth which provides a raised entrance area, as well as larger terraces around the house. The ground conditions mean that the gardens can suffer with boggy lawns at times.

Modern Timber-Clad Home Inspired by Traditional Barn: Two Pavilions

The Two Pavilions House is a striking modern timber-clad home set within the rural landscape of Phillip Island. Replacing an old much-loved holiday shack, the priority for the new design was creating a place that would suit the needs of multiple generations of the family simultaneously.
