This Modern Home situated in a residential area of Melbourne was inspired by the architectural aesthetics of mid-century homes of Palm Springs, and at the same time, embodies quite a few characteristics of modernism.
Formerly designed by Harry Ernestin 1964, this house was redesign by the Mim Design
team into a bright and welcoming home for a young Australian family.
The objective was to respect the history of this 500 square meter house and create modern interiors dedicated to entertainment, more private areas, and corners to store.
Miriam Fanning of Mim Design was captivated by the “timeless beauty of mid-century architecture”. Fanning before starting work on this project, she traveled to Palm Springs and was totally hypnotized with the simplicity of the interiors of the houses.
She wanted to bring the same vibe into this house in Melbourne. The spaces were opened and connected in particular the kitchen, dining room and living room so that the family could socialize in the central heart. The common areas are functional and the outside is inviting indoors thanks to large windows.
Several elements of origin were recuperated as the doors and the floor. The master bedroom design looks to garden and occupies what was before a bar and a second room.
The chromatic palette is mainly soft and combines with works of art that bring more energy and life to the inside. Natural light floods the interior spaces thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows.
The interior design team was able to respects its original architecture but added a functional and modern design.
