Located in the Sydney neighbourhood of Bellevue Hill, the home was originally designed by George Reed. The overall design concept was to keep one hand firmly in its mid-century origins and the other extending to contemporary design and details the owners had requested. Architecturally, this meant the introduction of an easy indoor-outdoor experience to complement the family’s casual lifestyle, temperate Sydney weather and to promote a light and airy feeling inside.
Replanning the traditional features of the home (where the kitchen is at the rear), Luigi Rosselli and Studio Schelp have introduced an open plan layout. Infinite dining and living opportunities spill out from this open plan area under Luigi Rosselli’s signature curves.
One of the challenges working within the open plan living area was creating a hierarchy of spaces with furnishings, all the while keeping to the casual atmosphere. So Alwill Interiors worked hard for the formal living space, kitchen, formal dining and bar area not to compete, but communicate. Another subsequent challenge (yet equally charming) aspect to the living space was its sculptural forms of curved ceilings and angular floor plans
