Perched on top of a hill on Sydney’s northern beaches, this Mediterranean style home needed an update to bring in more natural light and capitalise on the sweeping ocean views. The floorplan was reworked to open up previous dark rooms to the natural light and spectacular vista, and to create highly functional spaces for day to day life and entertaining. The Mediterranean style architecture provided the inspiration for the interiors. Arches were referenced throughout, herringbone floors were laid and finishes sympathetic to the era of the home were chosen – including super white dolomite and Bottega oak woodmatt joinery. Lighting was a key consideration – the home now features a Volta pendant over the dining table, along with wall lights crafted by Douglas and Bec, Marz Design and Soktas.
