While the house, a faux Georgian villa, in Sydney’s Lindfield had nice proportions it was, according to architect Daniel Boddam, of poor quality and outdated style. Hence he opted for a full renovation where only the shell of the main structure was retained while everything else was upgraded to the client’s brief of ‘mid-century with a twist.’
In terms of livability there were a number of issues from disconnected, unused spaces to a staircase that ‘choked’ the entry experience, which the new architectural interventions solve.
Relocating the kitchen to create more generous open-plan living, installing a sculptural staircase to be more welcoming and repurposing a third garage space to house a large mud room, which is in turn connected with the entry lobby and lower living room, where some of the key design decisions.
Given Daniel Boddam’s focus on luxury residential architecture his detailing of projects involves a high degree of finessing to get the perfect execution in the material mix, joinery and tiling.
“Robert Plumb Build was a pleasure to work with. They were committed to producing a high-quality outcome whilst delivering a positive experience for the clients, as well as myself the architect and interior designer. They have a can do attitude and are really focused on understanding and working with the design intent,” says Daniel.
