Formerly part of a billiards factory in Fitzroy, this simple brick warehouse has been converted to a family home. It is one of four dwellings around a central courtyard. Living is on the upper floor to capture views and sunlight while sleeping areas are on the ground floor and maintain cool relief from summer heat.
The interior uses a timeless palette of timber and white washed walls. Sliding interior and exterior panels dramatically transform the living areas from open plan to intimate and discreet. The balcony features a sliding cedar screen that filters the more intense summer sun and allows the house to breath.
