Tom Mark Henry’s architectural sensitivity is demonstrated through their salvaging of the original heritage character with reclaimed wharf timber on the first stair of the central staircase, the exposed brick facade internally, and the exploration of craftsmanship and detailing. The original brickwork was painted white to draw light into each space and offer a consistent aesthetic that fostered the client’s preference for contemporary design. The addition of skylights floods the once dark spaces with natural light, while the interior overhaul references Scandinavian and Japanese design through interior fitting and fixtures.
Muted colours ensure the quaint footprint feels far from congested and presents as a harmonious and peaceful sequence of spaces. Beyond the home’s interior, Tom Mark Henry introduced the green-painted steel frame glazing to strengthen the relationship between inside and outside.
