The studio of a former photographer has undergone an epic transformation and is now a three-bedroom house attached to a larger modern townhouse.
The original building in Port Adelaide, South Australia, was built in 1900 and served as a store for the owner, A.E Bond.
When the property came on the market in 2013, the new owners saw the potential to overhaul the space, now called Bond Studio, and add a second larger home.
Under the watchful eye of the designers, Bond Studio and and Bond Housefeature six bedrooms, four bathrooms combined with large open living spaces and external wall art by the Venice-based artist Peeta.

Part of what makes this property one of the most edgiest is that the owners have found a smart way to merge old and new seamlessly.
The Bond Studio with one floor has been converted into a house with three bedrooms, a bathroom and a luxurious open plan living room.
& # 39; Dealing with heritage protection was facilitated by the generous support of the local Port Adelaide Council, & # 39; told the owner Realestate.com.au.
The Bond Studio is equipped with modern fixtures, but the owners have retained a number of original features
Bond House is an architecturally designed masterpiece that extends over three levels
& # 39; This allowed the modest street aspect of the studio to remain – because the three-story extension is behind St Vincent Street – with a 360-degree view of the entire city. & # 39;
Although it functions as a completely independent space, there is an adjacent courtyard between it and the larger Bond House.
This larger building, which extends over three levels, is designed as a truly modern masterpiece, one that contrasts sharply with its historic neighbor.
The two houses are connected by a courtyard that also features an interior mural by Adelaide-based artist Joel van Moore

Upon entering the eye gets an exaggeration of space; rising ceilings are supported by natural wooden beams and walls are separated by clear fiberglass plates.
Dark floorboards provide a fantastic statement, one that is particularly interesting in addition to natural fixtures and functions.
The architects have created a great sense of power between the two properties by emphasizing open living.

The kitchen at Bond House is a sleek, modern affair, complete with dark hardwood floors and cupboards
Although the new building is modern in every way, the designers have also installed a 100-year-old Baltic pine staircase – an addition that connects the three levels.
Another aspect that helps the two properties to coexist in harmony is the use of the new home made of rusted steel outer beams.
In addition to modern covered decks, the modern home also has a beautiful roof terrace.
