Looks can be deceiving, and they certainly are in the case of this contemporary house in Albert Park, Australia. What resembles a traditional Victorian cottage from the outside (white picket fence and all!) invites guests into its cool and clean minimalist interiors, and an ultra-modern addition at the rear. George Residence, designed by architect Matt Gibson, sits on a narrow plot. This is what gives the house its unique character. The home is built surrounding two central courtyards with three building components. A wooden deck offers an uninterrupted runway leading through the home’s elongated layout, creating continuity between the indoor and outdoor living spaces. Matt Gibson.
