The original home was a beautiful Edwardian residence dating from 1890. It had been poorly renovated several times over the years, stripped of its period features and clad in faux brickwork.
The brief was to restore, renovate and extend the existing home for use as the client’s principal residence whilst a new unit was to be added to the rear of the site, facing the side street, as an investment property.
The front two rooms of the existing home were restored with their period features as a black timber floored entry with a feature chandelier opened onto a modern open plan home. White walls, polished concrete floors and areas of black feature ceilings open out onto a courtyard with plunge pool via full height operable glass doors. This black and white palette continues into the modern entertainer’s kitchen with black gloss joinery and marble features.
Upstairs finds the mastersuite with a coffered ceiling, dressing room and a feature Napoleon Bonaparte mosaic wall to the luxuriously appointed ensuite.
The contrast created between new and old gives the home a dynamic edge whilst balanced with the continuity formed through the use of a simple palette in black and white.
