Boy oh boy, are we in for another major eye candy! We all know home renovations are one of our favourite things to talk about. Not that we like reno works more than the brand new ones, but come to really think of it, nothing challenges our creativity more than knowing we have a solid reference to improve yet preserve, all at the same time.
Melissa Lunardon formed her power house with renowned-inner west Melbourne architects Basset Lobaza and builder, Truform Construction to redesign a stunning Victorian home located in a historic beach-side Williamstown suburb that took a little over than 6 months to construct. You don’t want to miss out on yet another home tour that will instantly make you want to put your cup back on the saucer because it’s that awesome… Shall we?
The Brazilian couple along with their two children wanted to revamp their Victorian home that has the 90s written all over it. With the help of the dream team led by Melissa herself, the home’s facade was restored beautifully to its former state with all the heritage features richly preserved — sky-high ceiling and its corresponding details, architraves and skirting boards.
Williamstown House unravels its interior with such a discreet kind of elegance. It’s soft neutral glows accentuates the over-all contemporary feels with the use of oak timbers, big-scale natural stone-looking floor tiles with the adjacent handle-less cabinetry for that minimalist finish.
Floors are kept bare, free from any rugs and carpets to make sure the family’s Labrador gets all the room without leaving any chance for any hair to stick to either of them. While the materials are kept luxuriously minimalistic, they also prove their functionality in terms of its practicality in everyday living.
Harsh interior divisions are nowhere to be found, making sure the open plan living structure provides as much free space for the entire family to use.
An al fresco area unassumingly sits behind the stacker doors, complete with a built-in barbeque corner and a Brazilian rotisserie grill that the family can make use of during weekends and holidays.
