The second level houses the private spaces and is where the design team set out to highlight the home’s original heritage features. “We sought to enhance the detailing of the era in spaces where the original building form and spatial proportions were retained,” Samantha Birtles says.
Just as custom seating and joinery make the most of each square metre, private spaces were also designed to adapt. The first floor was to feature a home office. However, this space morphed into a nursery during the building process. An attic retreat was also included to meet the needs of a growing family.
