Houzz Tour: A Cleverly Designed Home in Sydney Becomes a Family Oasis
Two decades after moving in, a much-needed makeover provided a large family with ample space and more than a little luxury
Busy professionals Vanessa and Liam love design, clever architecture and art, so one of the first requests they made was for a bigger living area with space to hang their art collection. They also wanted more bedrooms, an abundance of natural light and better air circulation. ‘They pretty much left the architect to run with that and he has done more than they could ever have imagined,’ Flood says. While Andrew Schultz from ASA Architects designed the addition, To The Mil built it with care – many of the home’s features are handcrafted and laid by hand. The home is now a happy haven for parents and kids alike; the smiles Flood sees on the owners’ faces says it all.
