Located in a listed Victorian property with obligations to retain the original internal features this lateral apartment has been remodeled to create a flow and transparency for modern living. Acting in an interior design role on this project alongside Architects Cole Prevost Inc and Boyarsky Murphy Architects, the dominant theme was to combine retro Scandinavian influences with modern Italian design, to complement the original period features of the building. This five bedroom family home with staff quarters, employs Dinesen oak flooring throughout giving depth and richness due to the texture of the wood, which offset the 4 meter high ceilings. New mezzanine sleeping platforms were introduced to each of the three children’s bedrooms to take advantage of the ceiling height and create a playful environment. The reception and formal dining room is connected by a double sided fireplace with full height timber framed glass doors leading onto a balcony overlooking the communal garden.
