ITN Architects Complete a Renovation and Extension to an Old 1880’s Victorian Brick House in an Old Suburb of Melbourne, Australia

Occasionally we find that contemporary changes and additions can detract from the older charm of the building or look out of place in an older neighbourhood, but designers who really invest in the project and take care in creating contrast between the old and the new often create homes that are absolutely stunning in their update. One such example is Neumann Haus, a private residence in Hawthorn East, Victoria, Australia.

The Woodman's Treehouse by Mallinson Ltd & BEaM studio (1)

Have you always dreamed, since you were just a little kid, of living in a tree house like Robinson Crusoe? We have too!

Woodpeckers by Ström Architects (8)

England is often commended for its unique city homes, proudly showing off old historical buildings crammed together with character in the streets of London and boasting old fashioned exteriors that contrast well with the modern makeovers the apartment has received inside. We wouldn’t be doing the country’s residential architectural feats justice, however, if we didn’t also take a look at the breathtaking homes creative designers have built and refurbished in the English countryside as well!
