Top 5 Australian Homes re-visited – Heidi Dokulil’s Sydney warehouse

The Sydney home of Heidi Dokulil and Richard Peters – architectural perfection! (…and that couch ain’t bad either).  All photos – Lucy Feagins.

Designer details – love love love that ENORMOUS Akari paper pendant lamp by Isamu Noguchi and amazing green dining chairs by Vico Magistretti / Artemide.  OK Hand by Tim Fleming, Flatland OK (from Workshopped).

Eames LCW Plywood chair in RED pops against the utilitarian concrete floor.  So so good.

To top off our TOP 5 Australian Homes of 2011 this week, I just had to slide in another personal fave, the super slick yet super understated home belonging to creative Sydneysiders Heidi Dokulil (of The Parcel Group and The Australian Design Unit) and partner Richard Peters (who studied architecture and is responsible for designing their beautiful home)!  When we first posted this home back in June there was much admiration for the clean lines and clever use of a small space – we even had a few requests for floorplans!

As we outlined in the original post, this unique home is an inspired re-working of what was once a shed at the bottom of a larger property in Sydney’s Randwick – it’s now subdivided, with access via a rear laneway.  Whilst the open plan living and pitched roof give it a spacious feel, this perfect pad is actually deceptively tiny – just 85m2, with one modest master bedroom and an even smaller study. Clean lines, clever built-in cabinetry, under-floor heating and a second roof (to sandwich insulation above the existing corrugated roof!) combine to make this minimalist home practical and comfortable for two very busy creative people!

Whilst the architectural elements and Japanese proportions are a large part of this home’s appeal – it sure helps when you’ve got the coolest furniture in Sydney!  For the full run down and all design details do pop back and re-visit the original post!

Too cool for school.

Bathroom – cute succulents on the balcony.  Galvanised mesh allows light through to the lower level windows.

    I agree with you. Flooring is a compulsory for Australian home due to whether requirement so Bamboo Floors is a good idea for flooring, it can be safe your home in both whether cold and hot.
