In the formal living and dining space, LAHAUS selected 5-metre long solid oak floorboards from an Australian timber mill, layered by a sisal rug. Elsewhere, the highly-trafficked areas are finished in concrete veneer. Black feature lighting such as the Waldorf Suspension Triple Light by Lambert & Phils from Living Edge further amplifies the renewed, understated aesthetic.
Far from a 1980s home in look and feel, the Villa is both contemporary and completely timeless. By introducing a monochrome palette – both inside and out – LAHAUS have ensured the home’s second life respects its architectural heritage and meets the family’s requests.
