An Australian Cottage Gets a Japanese-Inspired Makeover and a New Home Office
A weatherboard cottage in Melbourne gets a renovation and extension that make it a tranquil, live/work sanctuary.
When your office is also your home, it can be a challenge to separate work from play. But in this contemporary cottage located in Melbourne, Australia, Austin Maynard Architects struck the perfect balance, creating both a domestic sanctuary and functional workspace for a couple and their three cats.
To meet the homeowners’ requests, the Victoria, Australia–based firm created a bright and airy house where they could work from home, and also easily entertain friends and family.
