An uninhabitable, century-old worker's cottage has been reimagined as a drama-filled bachelor's abode, full of edgy details and custom furniture and lighting. The street-front exterior was reinstated to its pristine original state; the only hint that all is not what it seems is the gleaming gold-painted front door. The overhaul is the work of Glenn Lamont of Melbourne design and manufacturing practice  LifeSpaceJourney   (they're the team behind coffee bar Common Galaxia ). Is this the ultimate bachelor pad? Photography by Armelle Habib via  LifeSpaceJourney . Above: The restored facade looks respectable enough. Above: Lamont designed the house for himself. "Now that we painted the original front door gold, I can always find my place after a big night out," he says. Above: An original fireplace lends a traditional note to the otherwise pared-down space. Above L and R: A meticulously arranged group of amber apothecary bottles form a decorative tableau. Above: Vintage plow points mounted on the wall create a modernist collage. Above: A view to the kitchen; all furniture, fixtures, and fittings are from  LifeSpaceJourney . Above: A yellow Vola faucet adds a dash of color to the black kitchen. For the Vola in a rainbow of options, see 11 Favorites: Vola Faucet Color Splash, Kitchen and Bath Edition . Above: Tucked behind the living area, the small bedroom is enlarged by mirrors. Above: The arrangement is kept simple, with a suspended reading light and not much more.  Above: Life Space Journey's Copper Lights provide bedside illumination. Above: A row of vintage lockboxes serve as a wall mural. Above: A minimalist bachelor bath with more amber bottles. Above: A view to the small, fenced-in deck area off the rear. Above: The steel fire pit is made by  LifeSpaceJourney . (On Gardenista, have a look at an architect-designed Geometric Fire Pit —it's portable. Also see 10 Easy Pieces: Fire Pits and Bowls .) Above: A toolshed is cleverly concealed behind the deck walls. Above: A side view of the house. Above: Entry to the deck area is via sliding steel doors.  To see more, go to  LifeSpaceJourney .  For more architecture and interior design in the region, have a look at:  Rugged Sophistication in Australia , The Indoor/Outdoor Life in Sydney , and Slow House: A Serene Cabin in the Woods .
