Sonelo Design Studio renovated the interior of a private house in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. The original layout of the residence was with a long corridor, dark and distinct rooms. Changes have transformed the house into a bright and cozy place. Kitchen, dining room, and bathrooms have been moved to the center of the house. All rooms become more open and functional.
Subtlety is the one word Theresa Street residence evokes. Despite the modest budget, through rigorous spatial planning, restraint, and refined tectonics, the renovation work creates a modest seamless interiors effortlessly disguising the old as new. Photography by Peter Bennetts
