CY­CLING ON THE CEIL­ING

NZ House & Garden - - NEWS -

This Mel­bourne ter­race house takes bi­cy­cle stor­age to a whole new level – lit­er­ally – by hoist­ing the fam­ily’s bi­cy­cles up to the ceil­ing when they’re not needed. “Small in­ner-city ter­races are great places to live but they are usu­ally dark and al­ways short on stor­age,” says ar­chi­tect Hannah Tribe of Australia’s Tribe Stu­dio. “We de­cided to meet both th­ese prob­lems with a sin­gle so­lu­tion – a dou­ble-height space that lets light from the sky shine di­rectly into the mid­dle of the house and also makes room for hoist­ing bikes up. It’s the garage.” Ge­nius.
