Conversion of Our Old Bake House

When one discovers the history of Australia it becomes very precious - who built these building and what were they used for??

How to incorporate them into our modern lifestyle is the important thing. To bring new life and energy to them as they become part of our new world!!

This conversion became both a home, a studio and business for myself and family!
Project Year: Pre-2005
Project Cost: AUD 750,001 - AUD 1,000,000

We wanted to bring as much of the original building into our living area and incorporated the wall of the old bakehouse into one of the Bedrooms.

Colour was considered important to bring the sun into our rooms the soft yellow of the bathroom linen picks up the warm colour palette on the walls - offsetting the timber bedheads and side cabinets.
