A Historic Home Renovation | DPAGES

 

NESTLED IN…

one of Australia’s charming leafy enclaves lies Templeton Architecture’s transformation of a spacious turn of the century home. The renovation / re-design was developed in collaboration with Melbourne-based decorator Lou Prentice, with the goal of bring out the home’s classic character through the application of a restrained contemporary aesthetic.

TO CREATE…

a fresh yet cohesive flow between new and old, the team kept the color and material palette to a minimum – working in shades of white, gray, and black, while accenting with small doses of brass and natural wood.

IN THE INFORMAL…

dining room, a graphic tiled floor breaks with the solid colors used in the rest of the house, while a large arch preserves an overall sense of continuity – like its counterparts – delineating functional spaces and bringing a more cozy,  human scale to an otherwise expansive home. Such a striking example of how to imbue and old historic home with a fresh modern aesthetic.
