The wall of black-steel-framed windows and doors is something Rachel was very particular about. “The doors were custom-made in Melbourne, brought up on a truck and installed over a few days. Two things I refused to compromise on were the windows and floors, and these are the two things I’m happiest with,” Rachel says.
A joiner can maximise the use of a built-in wardrobe. “I’ve built wardrobes with shelves on one side and a desk on the other,” says Barry. “When the doors are closed it looks like a wardrobe – but with the doors open, it’s a workspace that doesn’t take up any extra space.” This design by Decus is another take.
