Winner of the Abode Magazine 2012 and House of the Year awards, Australia’s best designed Home. This two story contemporary home of 351sqm+ is located in Hawthorn, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The shape of the house and garden really stands out for me. White is always a great color to create space and brightness. The water outside is extended to enjoy on the inside. Lots of storage room by the built-in cabinets. Plenty of light because of the use of glass facades. Photos by Derek Swalwell.
