This modest budget make-over of a small cottage for an empty nester completely transforms this inner suburban home into a light-filled and airy modern home. Utilising a robust yet simple palette of finishes with a brave approach to maximising tight spaces, this design achieves a ‘cathedral-like’ openness within a very small footprint. The combination of no-nonsense lime-washed wall and ceiling claddings anchored by the softer and tactile featured archway results in a warm and welcoming, and somewhat whimsical, interior. The home reflects the client’s passion for sustainability, love of nature and Australian materials. It is a brave little building.
