Rodanthe

The client brief for Rodanthe was to reinvent the functionality and liveability of a 4 bedroom, 1880’s Victorian Italianate home in Sydney’s Inner West, whilst maintaining and embellishing its striking character. 

The house was typical of its era and lacked natural light, storage and efficient use of space and flow. Upon further inspection, the home was dilapidated, termite damaged and in desperate need of restoration.

The design response was to repair and restore the original portion of the home and to demolish the entire rear of the dwelling, building a new extension from the ground up. The new rear extension adapts to the demands of a modern lifestyle and creates comfortable living quarters, which boast improved ventilation, light access, storage and functionality. 

Carefully chosen finishes and detailed custom joinery, compliment the ornate nature of the home and contribute to the building's overall success. The home’s contemporary evolution is achieved by creating a striking juxtaposition between old and new, which remains relevant through the use of a consistent, sophisticated visual language.

The kitchen was designed to be the central focus of the home, with a completely new configuration, tailored to the demands of a multigenerational inner city home, with expansive access to a private courtyard for outdoor entertaining.
The selected finishes throughout were chosen for their unique, opulent quality and contemporary appeal, curated to compliment the luxurious nature of the original Victorian home, with a modern twist and timeless aesthetic to suit it’s multigenerational inhabitants.

“The house and garden really came into its own during COVID lockdown and accommodated my two adult children, dog and I living and working together. We have our own separate space but can come together when we want to. The kitchen is also a cook’s dream and we have been inspired to cook and entertain more. I have had passers-by stop and comment on how beautiful the house and garden are.” 

"Ally has transformed my house"

“I have a much better result than I would have achieved if I had worked solely with a builder. Ally has transformed my house into a unique and beautiful space that I would not have been capable of doing on my own.”

testimonial

“Ally is a young, creative and passionate designer with fresh ideas and I wanted to engage her to adapt my Victorian home to modern living and to ensure its integrity into the future”

“ Ally was very professional, kept deadlines and communicated regularly with me. She listened to what I wanted and was cognisant of the fact that I was the owner of the house and ultimately had to be comfortable and happy living in it.”

“I asked Ally to push me beyond my comfort zone when necessary and for the overall benefit of the project and she did this tactfully and to good effect! I am so happy with the decisions that I made in partnership with Ally that I would not have otherwise contemplated.”

“Ally also worked well with the builder and foreman. She collaborated well with them and achieved a great result. The renovation was a very enjoyable experience and there was no discord or discontent between the builder, foreman, Ally or myself. It was a collaborative project and Ally was always willing to listen and test ideas.”

“Ally’s research was excellent and she was willing to research on-line, talk to experts and find the best solution to a problem.”

“My house has more light, more storage, is beautiful to look at and has great flow, including a terrific outdoor relaxation and entertaining space. As a professional designer, she also had access to suppliers that the average home owner does not and this contributed to the overall result.”

testimonial

“My home is now beautiful, spacious, distinctive, comfortable and practical. Great for outdoor living and entertaining and to relax in. I also have a study that is great for working from home, with good light and ventilation. The house is now fully air conditioned, without damaging the integrity of the Victorian detailing. It really has been adapted for modern living.”
