The Arts and Crafts residential style emerged in Australia in the late 19th century; a movement toward Gothic-style homes with gabled roofs, bay windows and overhanging eaves. Fittingly, the Arts and Crafts period was marked by an emphasis on craftsmanship and avoidance of mass-production.
With these historical roots, this Arts and Crafts style home would’ve no doubt been glad to land on the desk of Madeleine Blanchfield. The original abode and its 90s extension tacked onto the rear were begging for change, to improve flow, usability and invite natural light into the home. What ensued from this design adventure was an exceptional use of attic space, to now accomodate a light-doused master suite.
