197 Staircase Metal Tread Design Photos And Ideas

Full of bohemian soul, the heritage neighborhood of Fitzroy in Melbourne is known as a real estate hot spot.

When it came time to renovate their double-story terrace home, the owners sought out local studio Austin Maynard Architects—a firm known for its sustainable ethos—who incorporated the empty garden to the east, and an old stable at the rear, to the new floor plan. A large, curved, sliding wall separates the master bathroom from an open net lounge area above the study.
