Like many historic, original homes, this dwelling suffered from a lack of natural light and the tired feel of old extensions from the 1980s. However, the original details, such as leadlight bay windows and the gridded ceiling and wall panelling, had lost none of their beauty and inspired the conceptual design. “The home’s gridded heritage ceiling and wall panelling provided a starting point for a series of design decisions,” Carr associate Stephanie Poole says. “Working within the original envelope, the first stage involved restoring and elevating the existing home, making it livable for their family life.”
