Looks can be deceiving....

Every year one of the local schools runs an open house scheme in the Hawthorn, Kew area and this year this house in Kew was featured. This unimposing Victorian weatherboard is hiding a secret....an ultra modern extension. The interior of the house is the epitome of an ultra-cool, inner-urban design aesthetic. With its minimalist colour palette of black and white, the owners run an interior design business and specialise in internal and external window furnishings. When they bought the house in 2007, squatters had been in residence, and it was in a dilapidated state. Look at it now - all original period design features, such as cornicing and skirting boards were removed giving the house sharp, clean lines throughout.
