Interior lighting shines through the perforated brick wall of this Melbourne home by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects, designed as an abstraction of a typical Victorian residence. Perforated bricks with opaque glazing ensure bright areas at night, while passers-by can catch a glimpse of the kitchen and TV room through the black steel grille. The ground floor offers the owners the main residence, which is connected to both the street and the garden, while the upper level offers flexible living and bedroom areas for their children, visitors and grandchildren. The interiors are modern, eye-catching, with warm furniture and mid-century details. Looks very inviting, doesn’t it?
