Hotham Street, Elsternwick

Approached by the clients to look at their new home, a flat roofed modernist house built in the 1960’s, it became obvious that although the finishes were run down, the layout of the house was incredibly well planned by the original architect. The design approach to the re-fit was to respect and embellish the original characteristics of the home with finishes and lighting that highlight the features. The subtle selection of materials and colours finishes are further enhanced by the careful selection of furniture and fittings which are evocative of the 60’s.

As noted on the Modernist Australia website:-
“Just take a gander of what can be achieved with some love and appreciation here. Modernist Australian, Carolina, is selling her 1963, David C. Moore designed home which has undergone what can only be described as a breathtakingly appealing renovation at the hand of contemporary firm, Conti Architects. Sold with full nod to it’s history, its future as an abode for some cool cat, MCM diehards seems assured. This is how to do it. Bravo to all involved!”
