It's hard for a converted warehouse home to look, well, not completely overwhelmed by such a large, open space, and this one, completed by Sydney-based firm Corben Architects tries really hard to do so. The 5,380-square-foot former warehouse turned modern family home and florist workshop takes advantage of all the space with strikingly (and somewhat gratuitously) large furnishings, including a funky 30-foot-long concrete countertop that folds down into the polished concrete floors and a dining table that stretches out for days. Other features are more practical: the central courtyard, for example, was added to bring in natural sunlight and ventilation to the massive interior volume.
