Pierce Widera maximise space in a mid-Victorian Terrace in Melbourne’s vibrant Fitzroy.
Collaborative force Amy Pierce and Nat Widera recognise the potential of a heritage home in Fitzroy, Melbourne, with their clever approach to space. Behind the single-fronted facade, light, bright and resolved spaces unfold into the next, as the Melbourne design studio tune into the impact of subtle details on everyday living.
“The high ceiling adds a sense of grandeur to the space, accentuated further by the two new pendants above the kitchen island and dining table,” Amy Pierce says.
The Fitzroy House has a light, neutral palette, in keeping with the minimalist interior focus. For Pierce Widera, this allows calmness to penetrate through, a backdrop for the materials to shine, such as the restored Tasmanian Oak floors and creates a cohesive narrative that is evident in every room.
Pierce Widera have brought a refreshingly pared-down approach to the revival of a Fitzroy terrace that’s respectful to its heritage and makes each millimetre of space count through subtle design intervention.
