The owner wanted to upgrade and, where possible, improve the layout of the existing house. The dated interior needed updating and it was important to make the home feel lighter and brighter to create a comfortable forever home.
To provide a backdrop for the art and furniture, the architect stuck to a simple palette of white walls, heavily figured black and white porcelain tiles, light timber veneer joinery, black fixtures and fittings. Highlights of green complement the saturated colours of the owner's art and furniture.
The restricted spaces of the terrace made site access difficult and the two party walls made it a challenge to bring light into the home. Skylights above the stair allow light to spill down to the lounge uplifting the space and opening up the spaces as much as possible allows rooms to borrow light. "The predominantly white backdrop draws natural light into previously darkened spaces and provides a clean canvas for the collector’s bespoke furniture pieces and artwork", explains the architect.
Carefully updating the interiors of this home helps it feel lighter and works with the owner's favourite possessions. Now, this elegant terrace can live on for years to come as the perfect forever home.
