Toorak Residence

Hecker Guthrie as Designers

The clients didn’t need more space in this large and traditional Melbourne house, just better amenity. The home was put together perfectly suits the young, stylish owners by combining modern, quirky touches with a classic nostalgic forms.


Making the kitchen the centre of the home was the key focus for this space. The kitchen and dining area needed to have generous space for large family gatherings and ample storage for the crockery and cutlery the owners had collected over time. For Hecker Guthrie, the kitchen became about respecting the architecture, but also highlighting the contemporary style of the owners.


Though the owner works in fashion and a well-honed sense of colour and style, when it came to the kitchen she had very few preconceived ideas. Rather than a scrapbook of Pinterest kitchens, she showed the team images of things she liked – art and objects and colours.


With the philosophy is that you create a beautiful and rigorous architectural space and then into it you insert objects that have personality that start to represent the clients.
