Home Tour – Davies Street Residence by Studio Four

 
davies street residence_01.jpg

 

The Davies Street Residence by studiofour began as an existing single level residence, comprised of low ceilings and a series of dark compartmentalised spaces. With strategic re-planning of the ground floor, and the addition of a new highly flexible first floor, the functions of the house have been extended and rejuvenated and the design adapts to suit the ever changing dynamics of family life.

Cold, dark and stagnant spaces were eliminated through both the insertion of a central courtyard as well as a new connection to the rear garden; all volumes now provided fresh air, an abundance of natural light and garden aspect.

Equally important was the client’s vision to have a home that supported healthy living. Providing a built environment that had abundant access to fresh air, aspect and light was paramount to the success of this project.

The team at studiofour comprises of designers with experience in architecture, interiors, landscape and art.  With the Davies St Residence they were able to provide a holistic design approach and therefore there were no boundaries in this project. Each discipline bled into another, to inform a cohesive, highly considered outcome. When approaching the alterations and additions for this project, studiofour's aim was to retain as much of the existing building fabric as possible and work within the existing structural envelope, as this would prove most economical.

This enabled the client’s budget to focus on items such as the custom steel screen and the series of glass sliding doors and walls, which maximised the functionality of the home, while, with their seamless detailing, increased the sense of space and usability, and connection to the surrounding landscape.

Home Tour - Long Jetty Road Reno

 
 

From Palm Springs to Long Jetty

With a passion for breathing new life into tired, dated homes, renovation royalty and popular husband and wife personalities Kyal and Kara open the doors to their latest project – a sunny, bright and all-white, coastal-style property in Long Jetty, on New South Wales Central Coast.

Their style is influenced by the architecture of mid-century Palm Springs homes in California – a design movement known as Desert Modernism and recognised by its use of clean lines, glass, natural finishes and flow-on indoor/outdoor spaces.

Kyal and Kara felt the unique design elements, simple elegance and informality was the perfect style to replace the original, dated weatherboard house – and also suited the laidback, coastal lifestyle of the area. 

“Our goal was to create a light-filled sanctuary that felt comfortable and inviting,” explains Kara. “It’s a real sanctuary but with plenty of space for entertaining.”

Upon entering the house, high ceilings, large glass windows and an open-plan living space flooded with natural light take centre stage. “The first thing that strikes you about the renovation is the scale of the ceilings. At 3.6 metres high, they make a real statement,” says Kyal.

Complementing the look and feeling of space is the use of oak floors together with a soft white colour palette and Corinthian Moda internal doors for the entirety of the interior. “The Moda door is a long time favourite of ours,” says Kyal. “Its simplistic design ties in perfectly with our coastal style, whilst also providing a unique difference to an otherwise standard door.”

With the high internal ceilings, the added door height of the Moda design plays an integral role in the grandeur and scale of the interior. Kyal and Kara were also drawn to the profile of the Moda collection, “the shape of the Moda doors adds an extra layer of detail that would otherwise be missed if we used a flat, standard, profile door,” explains Kyal.

 
 

Looking to extend the feeling of space in the bedrooms, Kyal and Kara chose Corinthian Moda doors fitted with barn door hardware in a matte white finish for the walk-in-wardrobes.

The wardrobes are a design highlight for Kyal and Kara as they wanted to keep with the clean lines of the walls but also create a feature with the sliding doors. “This is a great design feature which emphasizes the shaker profile of the doors and creates a statement in itself,” says Kara. “We’re big believers in every detail being carefully considered – it’s the details that count and create a unique and beautiful renovation.”

With a goal to design a family home that was built to last, the importance of high-quality and carefully selected materials was imperative. CSR Gyprock was the couple’s chosen plasterboard supplier for the second time, following the success of their Toowoon Bay renovation in 2016.

For the home’s internal linings, Gyprock Supaceil plasterboard was used for the ceilings, alongside quality Gyprock compounds. In the laundry and bathrooms, Kyal and Kara chose Gyprock’s Aquachek plasterboard, which is specifically designed for use as a lining in wet areas due to its moisture and humidity resistant properties.

Gyprock Alto cornices feature throughout the home and provide “a perfect balance between modern and traditional style,” explains Kara. Stylish yet unobtrusive, it was a well-thought-out design element for the Long Jetty home.

The crowning glory of the home is the ‘outdoor entertaining space to die for.’ The couple’s vision for the backyard was to merge Palm Springs style with Moroccan textures as evident in the gorgeous mosaic tiled plunge pool, alongside lush greenery and a breeze block wall.

Being alfresco living enthusiasts, Kyal and Kara installed a fully integrated kitchen and barbeque, underneath a covered deck area with large skylights that lets in natural light. A poolside outdoor shower also adds to the backyard’s coastal vibe.

Overall, with the use of carefully selected quality building materials and a strong design vision, Kyal and Kara have created a beautiful beachside sanctuary, designed to last a lifetime.

We love seeing home renovations and we love this modern, fresh, minimalist and super divine home designed by Joy Design Co

Situated in Caufield North, this 1980’s home renovation was dedicated to elevating it’s gallery-like living spaces with the new kitchen and bathrooms sitting quietly and elegantly alongside.

Joy Design Co's brief was to evoke calm and restraint in these rooms, to create a scheme that didn’t compete with the layered feel of the rest of the home. The kitchen and bathrooms were designed with a minimalist and timeless aesthetic with white joinery and quartz stone in subtle greys. They added small accents of black to anchor the look and compliment the artworks.

The lighting choices were chosen to honour the artwork throughout the home, hand-blown glass modernist pendants by Mark Douglass feature over the island bench in the kitchen and a single hand made porcelain pendant crafted by Porcelain Bear in the powder room.

If you follow me on instagram (if you don't, you can here) you would have seen me gushing over the stunning bedroom of this home a few weeks ago... and since then I can't stop thinking about it! 

This beautiful home was designed by Architect Madeline Blanchfield and is located in Sydney's Clovelly. It has sweeping ocean views, an incredible amount of windows which bathes the home in natural light, the most beautiful textures, materials, fittings and fixtures and just has an overall sense of softness that I have fallen in love with.

Scroll down to be inspired and to add some of these incredible design ideas to your wish list... I'll be adding the brass framed shower screen to my mood board!
