The open-plan kitchen, living and dining space is the real hub of the home. Minimal and void of distraction, the fireplace with its solid stone ledge easily becomes the scene-stealing feature here. Elongated and luxuriously oversized, it simply demands attention.
Framed by billowy, Belgian linen curtains, the living and dining room zone overflows out onto a generous north facing terrace, featuring the decorative crest that adds a final nostalgic nod. Echoing the grey tiles inside, it’s a space that gives way to the Melbourne city skyline beyond and provides a multitude of uses to its owners. In the words of associate and senior designer Lucy Marczyk, “it’s a fantastic space with multiple uses; it has the one-off feature of the decorative crest from the original building – now covered in ivy”.
