“Expressing a desire to retain the traditional and formal layout of this double-fronted house, the client’s brief was to create a home that championed the existing traditional elements while creating a vibrant and personality-filled home for a young and busy family. With areas for family living and entertaining spaces for the adults, the home affords both practicality and versatility.”

“A nod to the architectural history of this 1925 home came to mind when designing spaces in this home. Preserving original elements and details of the home was a lovely juxtaposition with it’s newly designed kitchen and layers of upholstery. We reconfigured the layout to suit the family’s lifestyle, transforming imposing spaces into the large open plan living and dining room that works comfortably for daily use and entertaining.”

“As soon as you walk into this home you feel at ease. Every surface tells a subtle story and goes beyond the norm of a traditional home. The warmth of the exposed brick, Blackbutt timber joinery, textured rendered walls and the array of handmade tiles makes the home feel heavily considered and undoubtedly harmonious. We drew inspiration from Spanish villas and farmhouses; the raw materiality, the minimalistic nature of them and the saturation of texture and fluidity of indoor/outdoor living.”
