A Former Basement Transformed Into A Light-Filled One-Bedroom Suite

Travels to Japan encouraged the renovation of the decrease-amount of this Sydney pad into a attractive a single-bed room suite. Getting spent some time there, the owner fell in adore with the minimalistic approach to residing, and enlisted Studio Barbara to provide that eyesight to life.

The resulting redesign included many interior adjustments to the existing decreased level of a spouse and children home, reworking a rumpus space and an below-utilised study house, into a vibrant self-contained one-bedroom suite, for the owners’ college-aged daughter.

Studio Barbara co-director Ben Selke claims that a single key ingredient of the brief was to ‘provide far more separation and privacy, making it possible for the client’s daughter to research, rest, entertain and host good friends away from the rest of the family’. The major goal here was to make a sensation of openness, removing the existing dim ‘basement feel’ in this area, and unearth its likely!

Guided by basic design and style principals and a neutral colour palette, the renewed spaces across this home reflect a subtle Japanese-inspired aesthetic.

Blonde oak timber floors from Nash Timbers exchange what was after a dim porcelain tile, when the authentic dim timber veneer was substituted for a equivalent pale timber joinery. This soft palette also serves as the best tonal backdrop for the home’s curated assortment of home furniture, with pops of colour in the course of.

One more highlight of the challenge is the double-sided, timber-lined inside window area of interest in between the lounging areas, which incorporates lots of storage, seating as nicely as a compact study nook, serving both aesthetic and useful uses.

‘It gives a location to perch, go through a e book, work on a puzzle, screen or retail store the eclectic mix of classic and new objects or to frame glimpses of the garden’ Ben explains.
