The constraints of this site’s size make the design outcome obtained one to behold. Once a mix-match of 60s, 70s and 80s renovations, this tiny home and less than 85sqm of land has been transformed to a beautiful modern two-bedroom (plus study) home. Maximising every inch of footprint, incorporating open-plan throughout, and ensuring clear lines of sight makes this little wonder appear much larger than it should. The interior design elements are simple enough to be sophisticated and provide all the amenity future occupants could need. An amazing outcome on such a constrained site.
