An historic  mansion in the waterside Sydney suburb of Kirribilli, separated into apartments back in time, revealed its - and the owner’s - enchanting souls. 
This renovation uncovered block sandstone walls, tall ceilings, and a fairytale keyhole shaped opening which we glazed & made into the front door. We imagine this was once the grand verandah entry of the original mansion, spilling out to the garden still enjoyed today for family gatherings. Our client is a lady from another time, yet thoroughly contemporary. A change to the internal  layout created an additional bathroom and larger kitchen.  We inserted a softly contemporary interior, which allowed the building’s elegant restoration to be felt as a warming backdrop to a modern woman’s life of family and career.
