Well, it may be New Year’s Eve(!!), but we’re still counting down the Best Australian Homes of 2012 everyday this week until Friday…. if you’re at work this week, I feel for you – but at least you have some TDF eye candy to start your days with!

There was a great deal of love for this creative Melbourne home when we originally shared it back in April.  Occupying a modest slice of what was previously someone else’s backyard in Coburg, this very special pad is the home of architect Emilio Fuscaldo of NEST architects and his partner, Anna Krien, a writer.

Here Emilio and Anna have created a unique, cleverly designed two bedroom home, tucked neatly behind an existing double fronted Californian Bungalow.  The new structure isn’t visible from the street, and can be accessed via a rear laneway.  How superbly modern and efficient!

The home is constructed in reclaimed red bricks with hardwood details, timber door frames and polished concrete throughout. Of course, being the home of an architect, it takes in bucket loads of natural light, with a simple, open plan design reminiscent of a 1960’s beach house.  It’s an understated gem, where careful consideration has been taken to create a functional, energy efficient home – such as Northern orientation, and underfloor heating, which ensures an effortlessly comfortable, fuss-free space.

For more on this fabulous Melbourne home do re-visit the original post!

The industrial kitchen bench is a vintage find, which just happened to be the perfect fit for this space. Living room details. Living room details. Photography – Sean Fennessy, production – Lucy Feagins / The Design Files.
