The Park Street Residence uncovers a new life for the traditional period house, creating a family home for three generations of inhabitants. The design reinterprets traditional elements to reveal the legacy of time. The façade is uncovered to expose the original ornate concrete and brickwork as well as noticeable patches to show the building’s history. The interiors are characterised by reduced ornamentation, referencing the grandiose qualities of the original structure. Every surface is treated with upgraded finishes including wood panelling and extensive joinery. Honest materiality and quality craftsmanship to tell the story of the past whilst supporting the modern purpose.
