The developers preserved the load-bearing walls and the roof of the building but demolished the existing slab. This led to the creation of a central open space, visible from every corner of the apartment. “White walls highlight the wooden…

AM Architecture designed the Camberwell House, a 5,920 square-foot (550 square-meter) residence located in Melbourne, Australia.

Additionally, the space clearly needed a common area. “To resolve this, we created a split level for the living areas, and the entry experience was re-routed to this new center,” the architects explained. The pavilion-like living…
