When Stephen Mendel—co-owner of Australian furniture company Globe West—and his wife bought a rundown 1960s house in the Melbourne suburb of Caulfield, the design-savvy pair knew what they wanted.

The Brentwood Residence is a project by Studio William Hefner. The house is a modern project that takes full advantage of outdoor living with several entertainment areas outdoors. Large sliding glass doors make it even easier to integrate indoor and outdoor living, also allowing a lot of natural light inside the house.
