This suburban Melbourne home was a product of the homeowners' creative mission and the helpful guidance of architectural firm Hecker Guthrie. The 1960s cottage required a good amount of love and attention to bring it to its current condition, but the result is well worth it. Light wood flooring replaced stained carpets; and five coats of white paint veiled the once dark stained wood. See the original profile of the project at Urbis. Photos by Armelle Habib.
