The home was created in the 1960’s by Payne & Hunt Architects and retained its first ailment: exposed brick and enough mission brown painted timber.

An primary rabbit warren-like floorplan sees a relocation of the kitchen from upstairs to the ground floor (a 3rd guest bedroom, loft with review and ensuite replaces it).

The removal of the current rear façade and realigning it with the storey previously mentioned expands the lounge area’s footprint. Daring crazy paving now connects the interior and external living places. Flat bars change enclosing picket balustrades on the staircase, although bathroom partitions are divided by vibrant timber dowels to independent bed from bathtub, even further extending the spatial parameters of the rooms while enabling enough all-natural light-weight to move freely.

Colour plays a pivotal function with contrasting peaceful and bold schemes. Warm shades of white, mushroom pinks – which include the stairway primary to the first floor – and black are the foundation neutral shades holding every thing jointly to generate harmony, whilst the brighter and deeper shades attract interest to the living spots and modular hero décor items. Area business, Lymesmith, produced a color palette to complement the uncovered brick partitions using bold tones on the bordering surfaces, culminating with a mural on the bricks themselves immediately powering the new hearth selected for its vintage attractiveness.

The abstract artwork was motivated by aerial photographs of the property’s coastal area. It simultaneously animates the place and gives a refreshing option to installing a massive wall-mounted Tv display screen, while complementing the new paving with its angular variety. Bold tonal highlights include things like the mustard yellow-tinted open up pantry joinery, blue built-in fridge cupboards and the terracotta backdrop to the kitchen area. Curved seating inside this house comprises a white brick plinth fitted with plum-hued seating cushions.

Legendary modular mid-century furniture enhances the original construct of the sixties. The final result is a generously playful and welcoming ‘shelter for living’ inside an Australian landscape which firmly rejects basing neutral style and design strategies on bland notions of resale value. This is an ‘all in’ commitment to self expression as the home wholeheartedly embraces a fearless like of colour.
