With fresh white walls, larch parquet flooring, and a sleek black fireplace, the apartment now radiates an open, airy environment. A beautiful pink staircase appears to float in the middle of the common area, demarcating the boundary between the living and dining spaces.

The villa has five bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, fireplaces, and air conditioning.
Formal Living Room
The sofa had to be large and deep enough that the couple and their dog could lay back, watch TV and enjoy the space. So, we had a sectional custom made and upholstered in a heavy duty Kravet fabric.
Traditional features like the high ceilings, decorative moldings, and parquet flooring take on a softer, modern look when juxtaposed against a contemporary selection of furniture.
The living room also features floor-to-ceiling windows, an original marble mantle, as well as a wood-burning fireplace.
What can't be obviously ascertained from this sleek reading chair? How the Northern sunlight warms the concrete slab floor in winter to help maintain a consistent internal temperature, "regularly achieving 25 degrees Celsius without heating in winter," said the architects. "It was important to create a space where the occupants could enjoy the summer warmth, as well as remaining at ease during the cold Ballarat winters."
In the living room, the horizontal lines of the timber beams at the ceiling echo the bespoke cabinetry that surrounds the gas fireplace. The dining room pendant is the Gubi Semi Pendant.
The owners asked for new common spaces with improved connectivity to the back garden and swimming pool.
WARC Studio founder Andrew Wilson came up with a design solution that would open up the interiors to the garden and pool, but still protect the home from the harsh afternoon sun from the west.
White shelving blends in seamlessly with the crisp, white walls.
In this image the T-shaped plan is clearly visible. The two bedrooms are retained in the head of the "T." The entrance hall, kitchen, and laundry room are set between the focal point of the plan.

Bice also added a second master suite at the back of the house, which is accessible by a separate stairwell.
Dining & Living
Shane and Claire have a one-year-old son, Malcolm.
The original flooring was a mix of parquet and carpets, with black slate stone at the entry and in the bathrooms and kitchen. During the renovation, the original HVAC system was replaced with radiant floor-heating technology, and the slab was recasted. The main rooms were then finished with solid walnut parquet throughout.
Living area
In the main living areas, two vertical veils divide the high, inclined ceilings, and also serve as partitions for the kitchen, dining room, and living room without completely separating the volumes. The living room is also connected to an outdoor gazebo.
Horner remembers his first visit to the home: "The architecture in the main living area was fantastic, and we just wanted to preserve that and concentrate on the areas of the home that were ill-considered."
In the living room, the designers preserved the existing Douglas fir paneling on the ceiling and walls, the fireplace, and the firewood niche. The cooler tones in the sofa from Design Within Reach, rug from Kush Rugs, and knitted poufs from SMG Collective balance out the wood and dial up the cozy factor.
Turin embraced the dark in her striking living room—the deep paint is Le Corbusier’s 4320J from Les Couleurs Suisse. An iconic Arco lamp by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for Flos, Charles sofas by Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia, an Extra Big Shadow floor lamp by Marcel Wanders for Cappellini, and a painting over the mantel by Martin Barré shed a little light.
The interiors are bright and airy thanks to high wood-paneled ceilings and expansive glazing that open to the outdoors.

Another original Eichler element which the homeowners have chosen to keep is the concrete masonry fireplace.
The use of wood softens the industrial feel of the concrete.

Poured concrete floors and crisp, white plastered walls have been used to give the interiors a bright and fresh look.
Bornstein’s living room features an intriguing collection of furniture. The sofa is made by Swedish manufacturer Ire. The 1970s wood burner was a secondhand store find, and the wood table, by Bruno Mattson, was found in a bin at a recycling station. He inherited the lounge chair from his parents.
The living room resembles a Sticotti furniture showroom: The architect designed the couch, coffee tables, and stumplike stools. The fireplace is made of stacked stone from San Juan, a nearby province.
Old Herman Miller posters hang on a nearby wall. In the living room, a yellow fiberglass stool by Nanna Ditzel sits alongside a French chain-link floor lamp from the 1940s.
The living spaces of house, built in 1972 or 1973, were originally divided into three—a kitchen, living and dining area, and an atrium (previous owners had covered the atrium with a roof). "The new owners wanted the interior space to flow as one, so we removed the glass doors and solid walls separating the enclosed atrium from the kitchen and living room," principal John Klopf says. "Some structural posts needed to remain to hold up the roof, but overall the space was opened up almost completely. The floor was leveled, and the plan freed up." The rainbow print is a 1960s Herman Miller trade poster, and the Vitamin Water print by a New York artist. A Sapien book tower from Design Within Reach sits next to the TV. The sofa is IKEA.
