Darling Point house is the alteration of and addition to an existing Victorian cottage in Darling Point, Sydney.

An exploration of finding the contemporary and grand within what is historic and compact, we have deliberately detailed the space in such a way that the handmade appears both youthful and reverential.

As a result, this elegant four bedroom home appears as a delicate, slightly feminine study in the role of the contemporary classic.

Our pursuit throughout was to create measured complexity; a story of rooms and a home in which each inhabitant could find their own usage, favourite nook or public arena. Densely told, this is a story which is effectively nostalgic, allows personal and intimate experiences and creates a high value of storytelling per metre, meeting the clients brief with care.

Similarly, our interest in the textured, hand constructed and materially robust spirit of the home was a theme we maintained during the design of this project. All surfaces have been deliberately hand-detailed and finished from polished plaster and painted tidelines to ceiling lining boards and contemporary wall paneling.
