The article provides information on the transformation of an old brick building into a house owned by interior designer couple Marcus and Daniella Balscheit in Melbourne, Victoria. The couple inserted a galley-style kitchen at the rear and built the service areas of laundry, bathroom and garage behind the preexisting wall. A skylight in the upstairs master bathroom was installed to chanel the natural light through a translucent glass floor into the space below. Among the furniture used by the couple are the Jens Risom sofa and a curved antique lounge chair.
