The architectural firm Hecker Guthrie has captured the inspiration from the Victorian era through its modern tribute to the high ornamentation. Three were the great ideas that underpinned this project: heritage architecture, carpentry of furniture and details. From the study they point out that when they first entered it they could feel its importance, but they wanted their footprint to be minimal, so they decided to preserve everything: the arches of the columns, the elaborate sockets, the cornices, the architraves …
Glass walls with steel frame
One of the most visual features of this house are glass walls with steel frame separating some of the rooms. The original spaces were maintained but we wanted to solve light and acoustic problems including these glass doors that keep the areas independent but connected at the same time.
Each room, one use
From the study in charge of the remodeling of this house they indicate that each room had to have its own use and feeling. It stresses the central part of the house with the blue as the protagonist, both kitchen furniture and the walls of the room. Also chester we see in this room is this color.

Kitchen and dining room
The kitchen and the dining room are connected through these large crystals, but perfectly differentiated also thanks to it. In the kitchen they emphasize its blue furniture and in the dining area we see only one large wooden table on which is placed a spectacular hanging lamp with several bulbs.
The walls of the room, as we say, are also blue. It highlighted its large windows that reach almost to the floor, and ceiling cornices and a large central ornamentation. For this type of details to be the true protagonists, the furniture issue has been left aside, and for this reason it has been based on simple objects such as a metal shelf, two wooden chairs and a cylindrical central table, also made of wood , A sobriety that contrasts with the intensity of the chester and the grandeur of ceilings and walls.
Master Bedroom Bathroom
This tribute to Victorian life we continue to see in the bathroom of the master bedroom where you will find a bathtub with feet placed on a marble floor that also continues the shower area. Serene furnishings and without big brags complete this stay.
In the bedroom we see also a sober and austere decor, which blends perfectly with the majesty of the large windows and the chimney. The bed is surrounded by a kind of metallic structure and furnishings complete with an armchair with quilted design and a small side table to create a comfortable corner in front of the windows.Tags: Melbourne, Victorian
