Canny Architects have sent us their latest project, a traditional farm house located in Flinders, a town south of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, that was given an incredible contemporary renovation. A dark exterior facade surrounded is surrounded by a beautifully landscaped lawn and gardens. Walls of glass at the rear of the property allows natural light into the home and helps blur the boundaries between indoors and out. Upon entryway into the home through barn-like doors, you will notice moody interiors that presents an interesting composition of both textures and hues, making this countryside home very elegant and chic.
