From Selzer Design Studio’s renovation of an Edwardian dwelling emerges Armadale House, a bright minimalisthome firmly connected to the outdoors.
Situated in Victoria’s leafy suburb of Armadale, Armadale House is a single-fronted weatherboard residence. Selzer Design Studio ensures that the minimalisthome retains its appearance as a single-storey house, despite the renovation making it a double storey volume.
Internally, Selzer Design Studio focuses their efforts on crafting a soft and light-filled interior landscape within the minimalisthome. In the bedroom, lightweight linen bedsheets interact with the coarse fabric of the bed upholstery and the velvety texture of the rug beneath.
The remainder of Armadale House reinforces its status as a lesson in renovation. In consideration of the building’s heritage, Selzer Design Studio preserves the traditional Edwardian architraves. Floor-to-ceiling glazing at the rear of the property enable the minimalisthome to embrace its natural, external environment.
Armadale House stands as a successful reimagination of the building of old. Opening the minimalisthome to its surroundings, Selzer Design Studio improves the standard of the residential experience.
