Seclusion, an home from Melbourne

From the Architect Robson Rak Architects, this light-filled Melbourne home introduces an open floor plan and a serene palette throughout its interiors.

For Kathryn Robson and Susie Cohen, the Melbourne-based designer duo behind this Victorian remodel, elegance lies in well-executed handcrafted details. With this bespoke design philosophy, the two set out to transform their clients’ dark single fronted Victorian home into a light, open space comfortable home.

From Caroline Wallis: “The challenge, predictably, was preserving the unique facade while both increasing the amount of natural light and adding modern amenities.”

When it comes to creating an outdoor feeling in your home, a set of floor-to-ceiling windows is the key ingredient to success. The designers explain, “These steel windows played an integral part in making the interior feel larger and more open by blurring the boundaries between the interior and exterior.”

Along the house you can find a V Leg Bed by George Nelson, a Tolomeo wall mounted luminaires from Artemide, a grey Halcyon Lake rug and Hans Wenger Wishbone chairs.
