The interior of this cottage shows how much space you can create in a cottage if you rethink dividing walls. Here the whole house is open-plan and just the bedroom and bathroom are hidden away. Could you see yourself living in any of today’s featured cottages?
The homeowners wanted a smart renovation that not only preserved the brick façade of the home but gave the interiors a fresh cheerful and modern vibe. This challenging task fell to Johnson Chou and it is fair to say that the stunning results speak for themselves!
The lower level includes the living area along with the kitchen and dining room and at its heart is a large natural rock that was left untouched during the construction of the home! Three bedrooms and bathrooms are also housed on this level while a sleek sculptural staircase leads to the top floor with additional rooms the master suite and a stunning roof terrace.
The last few years have seen many homeowners turn towards smart renovations and extension projects to transform their old dreary homes into cheerful contemporary hubs. Located in a suburb of Perth Western Australia this gorgeous home takes a similar approach as a dreary 1960s structure is transformed into a sparkling modern residence.
This tiny cottage has just two rooms; the main room and a kitchen/dining area (plus bathroom) laid out in a row a common building style at the time it was built. A couple would start out with two rooms and add onto them over time when they had the money and/or labor to do so.
