“This historic Victorian townhouse located in Notting Hill, London, was reconfigured for an active family of five. The original building’s interior had narrow circulation and small, boxy rooms. It was gutted and replaced with a new central staircase and streamlined rooms that emphasize comfort and family friendliness. New open plan living spaces were created on the ground floor and transitional details are found throughout, striking a balance between the historic and the modern.”

Modern monochrome in a heritage home

A Victorian era terrace house in Sydney dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century? I don’t think so. No drama, no tears, no worries. Just a clever renovation of a tired old home into a sophisticated, monochromatic, modern home that maximises space and style.  Think luxe and minimal, light and bright. By The Terrace Designer Jill Dinkel.
