The Doll’s House by Edwards Moore

Upon the renovation of a worker’s cottage, Australian studio Edwards Moore has christened the space with a new name: The Doll’s House. The Melbourne residence is given a new whimsical character full of circulation oddities with the two courtyards that divide the 4×23-meter volume into three programs. Wooden frames around glazed panels help to define the angles of the courtyards, and open up the narrow space with uplifting views. The untreated finishes in the interior of the home lend it a worn feel, but with the charm that often accompanies toy houses that have been passed down from generation to generation.
