The New Old residence is a project of the architect Jessica Liew, located in Inner city Melbourne, Victoria.
It offers a simple, cozy and relaxed atmosphere with bright but private living spaces.
The aim was to build a relaxed, private home that was energy efficient, practical and imbued with character from the all-natural materials used – complementing their extensive collection of art and antiquities from their travels. The result is remarkable. A home that has outwitted even other architects who have mistaken it for a renovation, rather than a newly-built dwelling on what was previously the neighbors tennis court.
