The arrangement of the family, kitchen and dining space is designed to be social, true to the modernist ethos. The open plan living, walls of custom joinery, fireplace, high overhead windows, and floor to ceiling glass sliders all pay respect to successful and appropriate techniques of modernity. Almost architectural natural linen sheer curtains and Japanese style sliding screens give control over privacy, light and views.
New Modern, a mid-century home in Caulfield, has undergone a loving renovation to save, restore and sensitively expand. Aware of the clumsy modification that many originally prized mid-century homes are now subject to, the client’s wanted to rediscover and celebrate the home’s original features, while sensitively expanding and injecting the property with new life. Our solution was to design with balance, to renovate and expand with the mantra “no more, no less”- creating something not oppressively minimal or pointlessly superfluous. Interiors are rich in material and form that celebrates the home’s beginnings – floor to ceiling walnut timber, natural stone and a glimpse of 60s inspired wallpaper. This Caulfield home demonstrates how contemporary architecture and interior design can be influenced by heritage, without replicating a past era.

Porebski Arhitects, Castlecrag House 2, interiors by Porebski Architects. The house only has one living space, that flows into the dining room, that has multiple uses - sitting, watching tv, reading, listening to music and dining room. Here the indoor outdoor connection is noticeable with the living areas flowing out to the courtyard on the north and to the covered terrace and the pool garden on the south. Photo by Peter Bennetts
