By looking at this modern family residence in Fitzroy, Australia, you would never imagine that it once was a horse stables back in the 1830s. The renovation by Andrew Simpson Architects is quite astonishing: they led the project of converting the historic building into a high tech and environmentally sustainable home to meet their clients’ needs.
They named the project Cloud 9, making reference to the 1896 International Cloud-Atlas in which cloud No. 9 was the biggest, puffiest and most comfortable-looking. The kitchen, which is really beyond belief, is literally the heart of this home where all the living spaces converge into a central area.
