“A substantial renovation of an existing two-storey terrace house. Paying respect to the heritage of the building, all the while integrating a contemporary style of living; an harmonious transition from the traditional; enabling a sophisticated, yet relaxed, easy-going family lifestyle. Playfully embracing the tensions between the decorative and pared-back, a warm cosiness and a refreshing calm; the interiors are subtly feminine, textural, with organic tones and just a hint of glam.”
I think it’s something Australian designers do so well. The harmonious transition from old to new, a marriage of the historic and the contemporary, skilfully updating and refreshing a property ready to face its beautiful future. Norfolk House by Sydney-based SE DÉA.
