Surrounded by Armadale residences of grandeur from another time, Seymour Avenue is the renovation and extension of an existing heritage home elegantly combining contemporary and classic proportions.
Where the original home offered a closed formality, the new design opens up and connects its spaces, illuminated with natural light through careful orientation and overhead voids.
The journey from old to new sees a transition from a weatherboard frontage to a series of linear masonry elements to the rear, with integrated privacy and climate control screens. Highly crafted oak flooring ties the spaces together, along with a muted approach, precise joinery and custom elements. A palette of monochromatic tones, natural stone and clean lines shape the modern spaces and extend naturally to the home’s landscaped garden.
Seymour Avenue balances an appreciation of the past with an understanding of modern living, allowing each era its own expression, and meeting the needs of the homeowners for years to come.
