Budget Renovation of Sydney Home Brings Japanese Charm to a Heritage Setting
We admire designs that bring in contrasting styles, finishes and even stitch together inspirations from different eras. But this becomes an even more challenging task when you wish to combine traditional Japanese style with modernity and wish to do so in a heritage setting Down Under in Sydney! That is just what you get with the Machiya House designed by Downie North Architects; a fabulous blend of the contemporary and the oriental on a budget that is not one bit extravagant. The street faade and the front rooms of this Aussie home were largely left unaltered with a new master retreat, study, dining area, kitchen and living space in the rear extension.
