Situated in Bellevue Hill, among the most affluent suburbs of Sydney, this elegantly renovated home combines the history of the building with modern minimalism in ways that’s difficult to attain.
Sydney-based Luigi Rosselli Architects responsible for re-imagining the Victorian bones of the building. It has been done by them carefully by the addition of a brand new wing which includes a staff and study groups above it and a kitchen and family room on a lawn floor.
What we like especially may be the eye-catching new three-storey staircase that links the new and old sections. an ideal signature of the time yet manages to appear absolutely cool and modern it seems like.
We also enjoy the whitewashed walls, the wide pine floorboards and the use of marble in the toilet. The great lighting installation (by Lindsey Adelman) above the staircase, and the comfortable however spacious vaulted-ceilinged loft are the old structure that is respected by both features however in a way.
In these pictures, it’s also difficult to disregard the beautiful show furnishings added together by Alexandra Donohoe of Decus (also of Sydney).
Throughout the restoration, the building’s heating system was also completely removed and it now runs a geothermal ac and heating system.
