Lindfield House - modernised, with a considered mid-century twist, the fresh, new interior reflects simplicity, elegance and timelessness.
The original house, located in Sydney's Upper North Shore, was built circa 1980 in a faux-Georgian style. The clients wished to fully gut renovate the interior, making it more modern with a mid–century twist.
Playing up to the classical style, Sydney architect Daniel Boddam refreshed the exterior of the house making it current and timeless.
The roof was replaced and streamlined with integrated photovoltaic cells. Doors and windows were upgraded to steel Crittall style with double glazing and ribbed glass for privacy.
The layout was amended on the ground floor to make the house flow. The three-car garage was reduced to two, enabling a cloak room to be created adjacent the main entry. New openings were created forming an enfilade between the cloak room, lobby and living room with a fireplace on axis.
The staircase was amended to the opposite direction creating a greater sense of arrival.
The kitchen was re-positioned adjacent wet areas. enabling more living space for the informal and formal dining.
A feeling of calm simplicity has been created in the bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom features a custom-designed green velvet bed, set against textured grey wallpaper with soft carpet underfoot. Layered and textured materials create a restful atmosphere with personality.
The master en-suite is an extension of the bedroom; the materials consist of rendered Marmarino plastered walls that give off a gentle lustre, combined with steel framed shower doors and eye-catching green fish-scale tiles.
All door heights where raised and new joinery aligned so that the feeling of space and luxury was magnified through the proportions.
