Heritage Home

Camberwell House

Heritage Deco era home with an architecturally designed extension blended the old with the new.

This heritage home in leafy Camberwell underwent an extensive internal renovation and architecturally designed extension to the rear of the block incorporating a swimming pool and exterior deck. Our clients engaged us to formulate a design concept that worked with the proposed modern extension, as the desire was to blend the original character of the home and create a material palette that was warm and inviting with a contemporary touch. They were after a home that reflected them, including a more softened approach towards the design and were after a personalised touch and to be involved in the selection process.

Working closely with the clients and the builder, a curated range of materials, finishes and fittings was specified for the entire home as well as designing custom joinery for the home office and wardrobes including a functional study nook. The existing front part of the home underwent a tasteful update adding an ensuite and robes and purposefully maintaining a more traditional feel with the rear extension a modern contrast. Small details such as the timber pelmets were re instated in the bedrooms to maintain the character and provide a finished look for the custom sheers and blinds that were installed.

In all, we were mindful to create a classic contemporary blend and an effortless vibe for the family and it really came down to the mix of natural materials.

Porcelain bench-tops with polished concrete floors, stacked stone accents, black-butt timbers and matte black fittings. A custom 2pac paint was selected for the kitchen and office joinery that added a soft grey-green, balanced perfectly with the hand-cut sage subway tiles used in the pantry and laundry. Japanese accent tiles created a subtle textural statement in the bathrooms and were highlighted by the natural light streaming in. Feature pendant lights by Cult and Furniture from Domo.
