Inner-Western - Forest Lodge NSW

A unique and character-filled home in Sydney’s inner-west suburb of Forest Lodge, Inner-western is an example of living well, in less space. Upon meeting the clients, it was evident that this would be a special project. They’re a creative couple with an eye for funky furniture and art with a ‘Western’ edge. The previously tired terrace now shines with personality in every room. Due to the strict heritage controls over the property, no additional floor area was created, instead, it was an exercise in recompositing of the existing layout, improving the flow through the home, and providing adequate space for their two young children, as well as spaces for their work and hobbies. Upon entering the pastel-pink front door, instead of being confronted with a dark hallway typical of a terrace home, you’re welcomed by a generous volume of well-lit space, and an open-tread feature staircase. The original ceiling was completely removed to create a double-height void over the entry. A skylight positioned above the staircase allows light to filter through into the home. Upstairs is a quiet attic art studio, with views over the Jacaranda trees beyond. The lowest level contains a new built-in dining area and kitchen which are directly connected to the private rear garden. The efficient floor plan contains 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry with W.C., kitchen, dining area and living room. Finishes throughout include original exposed brickwork, light oak timber herringbone flooring, and touches of pastel colours, complemented by a colourful collection of artwork and objects.
