House Alteration, Frenchs Forest, NSW
This renovation project involves a number of internal and external alterations to an existing understated 60's red brick home in Sydney's North Shore suburbs of Frenchs Forest, for a lovely couple and their two young daughters.
As is typical of many 60's homes, the existing floor plan was divided up into small rooms with little linkage to one another and a disconnection to the backyard. To better accommodate the needs of our clients a number of internal walls were removed to create an open and connected living space.
A curved extension to the living area was added at the front of the house to transform the entry of the home and increase the size of the living area. The existing brickwork is painted grey and a series of timber batten screens are used to contrast the texture and pattern of the brick.
Our clients love scandinavian / mid-century styling and as such this was the driving force behind the interior design. Clean, minimal tones of white and grey form the backdrop throughout the house and are contrasted by the warmth of natural timber and rumbled brass tapware and door fittings.
