Study areas, home office, guest rooms, ensuites, storage areas … The Block garden studios offer multi-functional spaces.

In the final countdown, (last room reveals), tired Blockheads, with Ronnie even succumbing to ‘The Man Flu’, they really did well.

The studios are huge, really they are mini-houses and the inclusion of multi-car garages is sure to add value to the properties in Elsternwick.

Sarah & Jason finally proved they are capable of presenting something the judges are thrilled with. Installation of a clever nib wall separates the bedroom area from the study area. It’s a happy space with lots of natural light. We were impressed by the inclusion of a full walk in robe and the ensuite is stunning, even though it was not finished.

Hannah’s & Clint’s studio apartment is amazingly simple with an open plan layout that will appeal to many. A wardrobe with plenty of full length hanging space – finally they got it right!

Ronnie and Georgia went out on a limb and presented a workspace, a stand-alone office. “It’s a functional home office, that could possibly be something else if you want it to be,” Shaynna Blaze said.

Clever use of the garage with a chalk wall (using chalk paint) and table tennis table  provides another play area for children that can simply disappear if a 3rd car space is needed!

The room has great energy, a nice palette and they haven’t over-styled. In true Ronnie & Georgia form, there’s great artwork – again.

Sticks & Wombat’s highlight was their skylight. The timber pitched roofing gives the room a very rustic feel. They delivered a walk in robe with doors on it and yes, the judges liked the closed doors.

Young guns, Josh & Elyse presented a very elegant studio, leaving the judges speechless.  Rendered walls, choice of tan coloured sofa and rugs tied in beautifully.

Sage green, soft pinks, and wow, what about that bed head? It’s not an obvious mix of style but it works.  Walk in wardrobe again had doors – the dark cabinetry – it looks fantastic.

Five incredible studio apartments with lots of 10’s from the judges, we liked them all.

At the end of the garden bath … is a garden studio.
