As we saw in Wellard Architects’ Elsternwick Home, the firm have an affinity for light-reflecting, natural materials, gravitating to timber for the interior and exterior. Wellard Architects introduced blackbutt timber for the internal floors, echoing the blackbutt timber rear facade. Painted v-groove timber lines the kitchen, living and transitional spaces, while rich, bespoke timber cabinetry features prominently within the private spaces.
Timber also characterises the void above the kitchen; the black steel and timber bridge battens informing the jet-black kitchen cabinetry. The devil really is in the details in this home, down to the panelled timber doors and leather door hardware from Made Measure on the second level, echoing the materiality of the living spaces.
