merrivale home

Open plan living

Kitchen with Plywood edging

On this small urban block we designed a bespoke home with multiple outdoor living zones to extend the interior spaces.  Windows are placed in alignment across the home to allow for extended views beyond and increase the spaciousness of an otherwise modest footprint.  Adaptable spaces, ample storage and simple living are the keys to this abode.
