The Mosman house, from the exterior, is a classic, symmetrical Queen Anne federation-style residence. Built originally in 1904, this heritage home leans on the complexities of traditional craftsmanship; using wood turning, stained glass artistry and specialty applied finishes to authentically fuse the old with the new. The installation of a new structural beam replaced a load-bearing wall to open up the passage between the kitchen and conservatory, and throughout the new open plan living, the original ceiling cladding was replicated and seamlessly extended throughout. On the second level, we created a wide-scale ceiling curve in the main bedroom and mimicked this again through to the ensuite. By honouring the existing heritage features, this Mosman residence remains true to its origin but still embraces our client’s distinctive style, through the attention to detail in all aspects of the build, even down to the custom integrated Venetian plaster extractor fan in the upstairs shower.
