Forty One South
Kingsville, VIC, Australia
Tina Rainbow from Forty One South has transformed this double fronted Edwardian property into a contemporary home that is generous in space and functionality.
Located in the Melbourne suburb of Kingsville, this residential renovation project breathes new life into the home without neglecting the traditional charms of the existing façade and original rooms.
Tina has added a rear addition extending alongside the north facing courtyard garden, which contains generously sized living spaces perfect for this growing suburban family. The home impeccably combines indoor and outdoor living in order to utilise all available space within the site.
The design focused on maximising natural light wherever possible and as a result, the downstairs living spaces and upstairs master suite are defined by a brightness that carries through the interior styling and overall feel of the home.
Tina has crafted an architectural design that cleverly overcomes the challenges created by this relatively narrow site. The resulting form is testament to the excellent combination of contemporary and traditional architecture evident throughout this project.
Ultimately, Tina from Forty One South has transformed a near-derelict residential property into a modern and highly functional family home, with a stunning central staircase providing the focal point for this indoor/outdoor living experience.
