Vista House Designed For A Young Family (1)

Vista House is a family home recently completed by Dan Gayfer Design in Thornbury, Melbourne.

Description by Dan Gayfer: A young Thornbury family, with a third child on the way, wanted to increase both their interior and exterior living whilst not neglecting the importance of the garden and its positive impact on these new spaces.

A generous living room has been designed in tandem with a covered outdoor living space that, with sliding doors open, combine to create one singular indoor/outdoor space. Both spaces are orientated towards the new garden terrace creating a calm and inviting vista no matter where you are located.
