contemporary update

The custom home builders at Finney Construction completed the redesign of this 1970s residence located in Caulfield, Australia. The contemporary update isn’t shy about it’s newness. The complex street facade stands out in the more conservative Caulfield area. The main entrance door is flanked by “a combination of Dado Render and Woodform Timber Batons on a curved wall.”

Inside, it’s all clean lines, white walls, concrete-inspired textures, and lacquered surfaces. “A pivot door opens to the social area with curved walls that guide you to an impressive corridor with high ceilings and a gigantic view of the sky,” the architects said

The social core of the residence is the open plan kitchen, dining and living zone; extensive use of wood makes the place look welcoming. Fully glazed windows connect the social areas to the deck and inner courtyard, while allowing natural lighting to flood the spaces.
