Charming Victorian House that Retains its Charm Despite the Changes it has Undergone

This wonderful Victorian house with lush gardens is located in Albert Park, Victoria, Melbourne, a beautiful city in Australia. The wonderful façade, in an elegant Victorian style of red bricks, contrasts brilliantly with the white details of its doors and windows as well as its typical railing, creating a striking set.

The project plans included an intention to harmonize the relationship between the house, the studio, and the garden. The roofs were raised, the points of view were framed, and the spaces were simplified, and all of this gave way to the black and white result that followed.

This project was carried out in 2015 by the architectural studio Hindley & Co, who managed to create a space full of warmth and comfort. These are spaces full of an elegant simplicity where each detail connects with the rest, weaving perfectly harmonized ideas together.

The existing gardens offered discord to the inhabitants. By redesigning it and selecting perspectives, outdoor spaces now show their best face.
