Much like the delicious breads it used to churn out, this former Golden Crust Bakery turned gorgeous family home is thoroughly satisfying - both inside and out. Located in Armadale, Melbourne, Australia, the unique residence is the work of Jackson Clements Burrows, who worked their magic to refurbish the bakery/warehouse while maintaining its brick-clad charm. Click through the gallery to see photos of the delectable interior spaces as well as the airy bridge that was built to connect one part of the home to the other.
Much of the exterior brickwork was left intact – including the original painted Golden Crust Bakery signage. Inside, however, the rooms are airy and modern with white walls and minimalist furniture  that allow the historic details of the building to shine through. Several of the glass walls open up almost completely, creating valuable indoor/outdoor space.
In order to unite the two primary buildings that make up the home, JCB  inserted a new bridge between the two. An architectural statement in and of itself, the bridge corridor is composed of wooden slats that allow for natural light  and ventilation. The newly created space is so pleasant that it can even be used as a social area with seating and views of the grounds.
