A deteriorating Victorian villa in Sydney has been revived by Australian firm Luigi Rosseli Architects, who, in collaboration with a host of other local designers, stripped away the house's "ad hoc" extensions and alterations over the years and added a minimalist, modern wing. The historical origins of the original structure lives on in its façade, and the interior is only lightly sprinkled with streamlined contemporary furnishings. Meanwhile, a gorgeous staircase has been spruced up with a whimsical branch-like light installation. As for the new addition, bare walls and operable floor-to-ceiling glass openings guarantee a breezy, no-nonsense space for entertaining.
