70's DOVER HEIGHTS
Our clients, a young family, approached us, as we had already completed 2 family homes for the parents, where Tally grew up as a young girl. The existing house was well designed and solidly built, with great ‘bones’, albeit somewhat tired and worn. Architecturally, it already had great exterior forms and lines which we sought to optimise by rendering the ordinary light yellow face brick, and painting it with a tonal contrasting exterior colour palette.
Ably built by GPM Constructions http://www.gpmconstructions.com.au, we incorporated some interventions and additions to improve the functionality and impact of some of the details in the home.
Central to the layout is what we like to call ‘the great hall’, a substantial dining space complete with a new fireplace and side courtyard, which is perfect for the large dinners and family gatherings held in the home.
We were fortunate to not only design the architecture, but also the interiors, the main component of this renovation. Our work covered detailed design of all the joinery, and the selection and built-in finishes, colours feature lights and materials. We also assisted with the selection of the core soft furnishings including tables chairs, couches, curtains, wallpaper and the like. A lot of the furniture was sourced and supplied by Spiros Delli of Dellis Furniture https://www.dellisfurniture.com.
This fusion of architecture and interior architecture, has produced a beautifully co ordinated home both inside and out.
