Post War Excess
An almost intact home built in 1951 which, with etched glass, Art Deco ceilings, varnished timber, and terrazzo forecourts, really had a 1940’s personality. The aim was to complete an extensive renovation that retained all of the original build’s details. We treated the new wing in a more reserved fashion but still took elements such as pastel bathrooms, terrazzo floors and curved walls and varnished timber to link it with the original. Existing collection of art and furniture was incorporated in a way that sat comfortably in the strong post-war Deco aesthetic. An underrated era is starting to be appreciated again.
