This Melbourn modern home is the embodiment of sophistication and elegance. The quality of materials, the luxurious textures, rich blue hues, and classic designs are all essential elements to bring up to date this polished 1930s home.
The architect responsible for this stunning project Robert Mills, retained the integrity and charm of the original house while turning it into fully functional, contemporary home.
The client’s brief for Carrical was for the extensive revitalization of their 1930s house, to create a functional, livable family home that featured all the luxuries of contemporary living and allowed interiors, architecture, and landscape to work together as one.
The rooms in the original house, on a smaller scale and proportion than contemporary living, have been reused in a mélange of a formal entrance and intimate living areas, with obsolete spaces opened up to provide access to the garden.
Connected to the original house by a breezeway is a new living pavilion, built in the style of the original and featuring the same materials, but on a grander scale to allow for the bolder, more luxurious spaces that suit contemporary lifestyle while maintaining a link with the original design.
Old and new sit side by side but their language and style are as one – an innovative, holistic approach that pervades the house from big picture to smallest detail. Superior quality and bespoke workmanship are present in every hand-crafted execution, every material, and every finish.
Craft and consideration, livability and luxury, old and new – these are interwoven into the style and substance of this house, which alongside mindful design, has resulted in a space filled with the luxuries of contemporary living while never losing sight of the integrity and charm of its 1930s origins.
