The 'Beeston Street House' is the latest project by Australian firm Shaun Lockyer Architects.

The architects stepped in after a previous renovation proved to be rather unsuccessful. The Lockyer design features a series of sculpted voids and formations that breathe new life into the pre-war cottage. The secondary function of the voids are to unify old and new components, creating a more harmonizing design.

Rather than increasing the size of the home in their renovation, the architects made it more compact in order to better please the clients. To make up for the size reduction, each square foot of the residence is used purposefully, creating a fluid and engaging space with no unnecessary rooms or extensions, and not a single inch wasted.
