A fusion of 1930s charm and modern elegance

Posted on Thu, 30 May 2024 by midcenturyjo

Located in Melbourne’s leafy inner suburbs, Heyington Residence is a renovation by 11:11 of a 1930s interwar home, originally inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement. The studio preserved and honoured these ideas, focusing on quality materials and craftsmanship. Despite losing many original details during a 1990s renovation they reinstated the home’s charm with modern functionalities. Intricate timber panelling in the study guided new joinery complemented by natural stone and polished plaster. The result is a contemporary family home blending modern comfort with historical character.
