If you love the adaptive reuse of structures then you are bound to instantly fall in love with the Water Factory in Victoria. Revamped and refurbished by Andrew Simpson Architects this Aussie home showcases a wonderful fusion of heritage exterior and contemporary interior with each influencing the other in a remarkable fashion.

Dark wooden floors and a brick wall just outside add to the textural beauty of the Armadale House 1 accomplishing a simple effective and functional transformation.
But what really draws your attention at this modern-rustic home is the wonderful use of old brick warm wooden surfaces and smart bespoke lighting to create a refined and cozy fusion of contrasting styles.
Space is often the biggest issue in most modern homes with many of us looking to find that extra square footage that we feel would make all the difference.
