LAYERED SHADES of white on white and the installation of a new master ensuite and additional skylights and windows uplift the interiors of this heritage home.

Phoebe Nicol of Phoebe Nicol Interior Architecture skilfully updated, refreshed and rationalised the Woollahra, NSW, property, bringing it into a new century all ready to face a beautiful future.

How did you become involved with this project and what was the client’s brief?

Owners Jessie and Maclay approached me in January 2020 as they had just purchased the house and were excited to renovate. It was their first home and their first renovation, and they wanted to create a young space that balanced its heritage features with a pared-back modernity. The final result is a home that is easy to live in without compromising on character.

What were the challenges of the space and how did you resolve them?
