Cottesloe, WA 6011
We were engaged as the design consultant for this house extension in Cottesloe. The house had been renovated a couple of times in its lifetime and all the original arches had been removed, except for one remaining in the front facade. From the beginning, we were inspired by this arch window and this informed our project concept – The Plantation Home.
The owners are a young professional family, the mother - a fashion stylist who wanted a timeless, distinctive design that was practical and suited everyday family living. Our Look Book sourced inspiration from Greek villas and Moroccan Riads. We were looking for bold colours, pattern, contrast, the use of whites and how to tie in the proportions of the arches into the proposed design.
The extension features a modern kitchen and dining space with a relaxed resort feel which is connected to a courtyard and an outdoor dining area. The indoor / outdoor connection was a high consideration and we chose to frame the views with custom steel windows and doors with an arch detail carried through out.
