Personal Residence along with Wonderful Packet Walls
This private residence, referred to as Ruffey Lake House, was designed in 2016 by Steph Richardson and John Liu, that are part of the team at the Australian architectural firm Inbetween Architecture, with interior design developed by Aldona Pajdak. The home covers a total ground area of 485 square meters and overlooks the Ruffey Lake Park in Doncaster, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia.
The double brick home was originally constructed in the 1970s, and has withstood a complete transformation in the hands of Inbetween Architecture.
The interior, which had been previously compartmentalized, was reconfigured and turned into an open space in order to enable easier illumination and a far more stylish design. This also permits an easier connection between kitchen, dining, and living spaces, and for a better flow in their various functionalities. The west side of the bottom floor holds quieter private spaces, like the library, music room, and TV den. A timber clad island divides the east and west sides of the ground, and also serves to conceal the cloak room, bathroom, and pantry. On the next level will be the bedroom suites, an additional bathroom, and a big north facing terrace, that is accessible both from the landing and the master suite.
