The former Golden Crust Bakery in the Armadale suburb of Melbourne was transformed into a fascinating dream home by talented architectural practice Jackson Clements Burrows (JCB). What used to be a bakery and warehouse houses now the lifestyle of a large family. Keeping the original building fabric and reshaping the interiors, the architects revived the original charm of the building while showcasing its modern potential.
Inserting a new bridge that connects the two buildings created a social connection necessary for the building’s new function. Elegant and modern design lines create a stunning atmosphere. Four basic areas were created inside: one for the parents including the master bedroom on the first floor and separate ground floor studies, one for the whole family to meet in the dining, living and kitchen areas, one for the children upstairs right next to the master bedrooms and the last one for the teenagers placed in the former stables outside the main house. This last zone includes three kids rooms, a guest room and rumpus area, encouraging them to become independent.
According to the architects, “The client’s uncompromised commitment to the preservation and enhancement of the existing fabric provided the foundation for the project’s ultimate success.”
