This Victorian-era house from Carlton, Australia surprised us with its timeless design and unexpectedly fresh vibe. The house was remodeled in 2018 by studio Biasol and features an atrium delineated by the glass and filled with plants. This little space has a big impact on the house and the overall decor and ambiance, creating a fresh vibe and letting natural light into the adjacent areas. A similar effect is also achieved through a series of voids and skylights as well as a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor areas.
This is a Victorian-era home that’s been reimagined to suit a modern lifestyle yet somehow managed to preserve some of its original charms. The new design puts an emphasis on the timeless beauty of classical architecture but also on the simplicity and functionality of certain modern details. The architects and their clients shared a deep appreciation for history and architecture and design in general and this is reflected in a lot of the details included in the new interior design such as the cast-iron lacework, the chevron timber floors or the natural stone surfaces.
