Butler House

  • Posted by SHFT on October 24, 2010 in Architecture
  • Spotted over at Inhabitat is this beautiful reclaimed warehouse space, made into a wonderfully livable, three-story family home by Andrew Maynard Architects. Located in Melbourne, Australia, the green-roofed Butler House is a quiet, light-filled space that adapts to the needs of the young family. With a large outdoor roof terrace, the architects say that the design "fills the void that affects so many inner-city dwellings — a lack of outdoor space." The turf roof provides views of the city skyline, blurring the boundaries between inside and out.
