Karoot Apartment, Melbourne

Lauren and Nicholas Russo found Karoot while searching for a home for their growing family. Together they lovingly converted the 40sqm/431sqft mid-century apartment into a two-bedroom home, focusing on accentuating the existing feature wall and full-height windows.

The space is laid out to guide towards the outside view, using multipurpose curtains to add texture and conceal utilities. Each of these is seamlessly integrated with concealing joinery and materials that flow throughout the home. With a focus to maintain and preserve, Lauren and Nicholas are keeping older housing alive and used.
