Dutch Gable House: A Fusion of History and Modernity
Shortlisted for the Australian Interior Design Awards 2020, Dutch Gable House represents a sophisticated renovation. This endeavor flawlessly blends the architectural elements of the historic dwelling with contemporary design principles.
Influence of Exterior Aesthetics on Interior Design
The dramatic, bold transformation of the interior draws direct inspiration from the distinctive traits of the facade.
Creating Space for Entertainment
To form a proportionate entertainment area, a modern extension, nestled between the house’s two primary living spaces, was proposed. Outfitted with continuous steel windows and doors, the extension optimizes light influx and offers unrivaled garden views.
Material Selection: A Blend of Bold and Interesting
Our adventurous clients were receptive to the exploration of bold and intriguing materials, particularly Titanium Granite and Cote D’Azur marble. The design, therefore, adopted an added layer of dimension with textured elements like timber battens and double herringbone oak floors.
Integrated Custom Joinery: Showcasing Lifelong Treasures
Weaved into the design was custom joinery, a key feature accommodating the clients’ desire to display cherished collections gathered during years of overseas travel.
