Creative restyling in Sydney: from Victorian villa to modern house

Australia: a historic dwelling transformed into a rationalist architecture with exposed concrete walls and swimming pool

A refurbishment under the sign of creativity for Orama Residence: a spacious Victorian villa in Sydney revisited by Smart design studio.

The structure, developed on two floors and embellished by some original architectural details such as the ample fireplace and the decorative stuccos, needed a restyling to feel more modern and functional, in line with the necessities of the owners, a couple plus teenage children.

The idea behind the project is to give life to a bright and clear space, where the rough texture of the exposed concrete becomes a fill rouge connecting the garden walls, the swimming pool and the garden.

The original structure has been expanded as well: a suggestive double height living area functions as the center of the refurbished house. Six meters high glass windows make sure the room is always filled with natural light, while offering a nice view open on the surrounding green. The owners' art collection contributes to create an evocative atmosphere. Beside, a modern stainless steel kitchen isle and a total white staircase that leads to the sleeping area on the first floor, equipped with double bathroom adorned with white marble details.

The two faces of the building, old and new, are connected by the search of an elegant yet discreet look, a harmonic attention to the detail and a delicate and neutral use of the colors, favoring the display of the art collection.
