Lilyfield Warehouse by Virginia Kerridge

Australian architect Virginia Kerridge takes an old brick industrial warehouse and turned it into a wonderful family home.

The warehouse, located in the Sydney, Australia, suburb of Lilyfield, was built in the 1900s. It had been used as a furniture warehouse and before that, a warehouse for the "Oh Boy Candy Company."

Kerridge preserved the original exposed brick wall as well as the old growth timber roof trusses, and opened one side of the house to create a central garden that's visible from most areas of the house. In addition of letting in the sunlight and affording the view of the skies from the kitchen, living room, and bedroom, the garden provides a safe space for the children to explore and play.

The Lilyfield Warehouse project won 2013 RAIA Interior Architecture Award, 2013 Australian Timber Design Award for Residential Best Innovation, as well as the 2013 Houses Award for Outdoor Award as well as Alterations and Additions over 200 sqm Award.
