Typically, architects relish the thought of creating and conceptualizing a project from the ground up — however, every now and then, a particular restoration gets their blood pumping just as fast. As is the case with the Hunters Hill House, a 1920s-era dwelling located in Sydney, Australia’s “centralized” suburb of Hunters Hill.
The Hunters Hill House is a spectacular renovation that strikes true to the traditional Australian design principles circa 1927, while navigating entirely new ideas. To implement a large, open layout that was more expansive (and modern) than the home’s original, Rozelle-based architect Joshua Mulders was contracted to implement a divisionary plan that would segment the home into parts. Utilizing the space’s existing brickwork and combining it with textured wood, stark angles, and handsome linework, the Hunters Hill House started to take shape — blurring the lines between the dwelling’s light, airy living space, character-embued facades, and modest outdoor relaxation area.
