Reviving Great Houses from the Past

Images Publishing

Stephen Crafti

  • Reviving is a detailed study of significant restorations and remodels of houses built between 1900 and 1950 in Australia. Now highly sought-after, structures from this era are being cleverly reworked by architects to reveal stunning contemporary spaces within.

    The houses featured are all very different, both in terms of style and scale. Some are almost palatial; others little more than what were once known as workers cottages. However, irrespective of size or location, all of these houses exemplify how successful renovations can be achieved from a number of different approaches.
