Pulling Back the Veil

Pulling Back the Veil

We have a sneak peek at what’s coming out in our next issue of Habitus magazine – including a preview of Terrace House 1 by Dreamer.

Showing that bigger does not necessarily mean better, Terrace House 1 by Dreamer is an alteration and addition project in Melbourne’s Ascot Vale, with a clever redesign that connects to greenery.

A new level has been added to accommodate the new main bedroom suite, including the addition of a green roof. Given the owner’s penchant for gardening, it’s an inclusion that brings endless joy.

Lighting and materiality come together effortlessly to create a gentle ambience that is warm and welcoming, including a recycled and re-milled Tasmanian messmate timber sealed with beeswax, which has been used in the bedroom, alongside polished concrete and timber throughout.

Dive deep into this beautiful renovation project in issue #51 of Habitus magazine – the Kitchen & Bathroom Annual.

In addition to covering six outstanding homes from across the Indo Pacific, issue #51 will also explore the ways Kitchen & Bathroom spaces can transcend the every day.

We look at resort bathrooms for inspiration in creating sanctuaries and retreats in our homes, and at outdoor dining as a natural extension to the kitchen and living space.

Pre-order your copy of Habitus #51 – the Kitchen & Bathroom special now. Habitus will be out at leading newsagents and on Zinio from 17 June.
