Last week I wrote about an amazing warehouse conversion in Melbourne, Richmond Residence, which was shortlisted in the residential decoration category of the Australian Interior Design Awards. The winners were announced on June 10 – the Richmond Residence picked up a commendation in its category – and I wanted to share another project, this time from the residential design category.
Like Richmond Residence, Double Life House is located in Melbourne, and this project also picked up a commendation. I was intrigued by its description on AIDA: “A house for two introverts living in a world of extroverts. Double Life House is an attempt to keep them sane, to protect their true identities from the outside world. It’s their hideout, their fortress of solitude. A mild mannered exterior, but an interior made of steel and strength.”
