Given the age of the existing dwelling, a plan to expand was definitely crucial. The brief was to rework the layout and interiors of the home, incorporating an extension to the rear. While this was no simple task, it was certainly one that paid off. The original staircase was relocated to the centre of the home and a new steel extension consisted of a living, dining and kitchen pavilion. A large skylight was installed above the new staircase, filling various spaces with light and giving the open and lively feel the clients desired.
Keeping in tune with the original architecture of the home was hugely important when making any design decisions, particularly when it came to material choices. A careful material palette was selected to ensure a harmonious flow was achieved throughout. Deep timber accents paired with crisp white hues have been used, seamlessly blending the past and present. A refined palette of materials and colours allowed the true beauty of the home to shine through.
Through a few major spatial planning considerations, a commitment to respecting the home’s original heritage charm and a display of excellence in interior design, the once rundown Centennial Park House has been restored back to its former glory.
