History repeats with Glamour addition
Luigi Rosselli architects are renowned for their vision and beautiful designs and this Woollahra home, in Sydney, is no exception. The bones of this residence are beautiful but, a couple of previous renovations have not really hit the mark. The key to this renovation is the build-in of the entry and the breathtaking stairwell that links the old and the new sections of the house.
It is the hidden and very steep block, invisible from the street, that enables this home to take advantage of spectacular views of Double Bay and Sydney Harbour. That's where the stunning staircase, by GNC constructions, linking the ground level to the attic and the lower ground floor really makes this house come alive.
The interior design features strong black & white in the entrance and throughout the original home with stylish features and just the right amount of 'bling'.
The living rooms take on a style sympathetic to the home's age and character. Gold framed pendants, tables, and furniture combine beautifully with more modern artwork and antiques.
The rear of the home is reminiscent of resort overlooking the Mediterranean. The palette of blues, yellow and greens in the existing home are used in the extension reflecting the landscape and the water views back inside the home to create a serene and relaxing environment.
I love the use of modern 'classic' black steel doors that give the owner an uninterrupted view of the water and link so wonderfully back to that staircase. I would like to see more of the kitchen to get a better idea on how it integrates into the rest of the living space. I'm also a big fan of the artwork chosen throughout the home and, of course, who could go past that masterful entrance.
