Behind an Edwardian facade in Richmond, Melbourne Architects EAT have designed this extraordinary renovation and extension. The design is sophisticated yet minimal reflecting a contemporary lifestyle. Light filters through strip glazing in the ceiling while black gloss floors anchor the white Edwardian jewel box. Hard concrete finishes mark the transition to the new. Love this space. Love the filmy black drapes as room divider. Love.
Melbourne architectural and interior design firm Architects EAT was established in 2000 and has over 20 years combined experience. Their designs take into account what they term as the “enrichment of lifestyle” and centre on strong design aesthetics and timeless experiences. They believe that architecture must be experienced intuitively firsthand. Their approach is about the physicality and haptic (sense of touch) experience of a building and it’s materials. They also maintain a strong carbon neutral ethos. Their work reflects their desire to explore the senses and design for a brighter future.
Will Wick is the force behind Wick Design Group. His San Francisco design firm is influenced by Brazilian modernist styles of Oscar Neimeyer, the timeless designs of Italian Gio Ponti and the classic, bold work of Francis Elkins. A style marker for the Will’s work is the use of organic elements such as the raw almost primitive timber pieces.
