We've been wowed by residential design Down Under on many occasions, but this update to a 1960s house features some unexpected architectural sleight-of-hand. Nestled on a verdant site in Melbourne, this low-lying dwelling received a sparkling renovation from local firm Bower Architecture.
Dubbed the Stepping House, the residence's lowkey black-and-white facade hides stellar, light-filled interiors. Inside, clean-lined custom cabinetry (timber), sleek kitchen countertops (marble), and handsome floors (Australian bluestone), merge to create a quite nice indoor-outdoor home for the clients.
Out back, a pool and covered terrace provide a spot for sunning and swimming.
