Fitzroy Terrace by Taylor Knights skylight in the sunken lounge living room

Rough and Refined Details Play Nice in This Reimagined Melbourne Victorian9 of 15

The large skylight brings an abundance of natural light into the space, creating an indoor/outdoor feeling that is "so important for Melbourne climate," says Knights. The floor is Eco Outdoor Endicott Crazy Paving and is used on the adjacent outside terrace as well. "We wanted a material that would work just as well inside as out, and create a seamless threshold. Having one continuous material makes the room feel twice the size of what it really is."
