The development of Harold Street House from Melbourne, Australia was carried out by Nest Architects in 2014. It has been wanted that the renovation to have a timeless character, so this residence will not “age” too soon. As such, the architects chose to use simple materials that do not go out of fashion: white painted bricks, timber floorboards and a beautiful timber lined ceiling.

The whole carpentry and kitchen were designed in the same simple line, without trying to overwhelm you with too many details. All the structural elements, arrangements, finishes and interior design elements have become a background of the owner’s daily life. “The look of the new part of the house has a slightly 1970’s feel about it due to the very heavy brick corners. The heaviness of the rear facade is then broken down slightly with the use of timber lining boards that act as both seats and eaves and clear glazing which links the house to it’s backyard.” [Styled by Esther Stewart, photography by Lauren]
