Best Residential Interior – Arent & Pyke, Under the Tree

The golden gong for Best Residential Interior (aka – what your home COULD look like) went to Arent & Pyke for their work on Under the Tree. Earthy tones in this renovated weatherboard cottage make a subtle reference to the family’s South African heritage, whilst an eclectic collection of textures, soft furnishings, furniture and original artwork add depth and dimension.

Best Residential Kitchen Design – Kennedy Nolan, Caroline House

Kennedy Nolan were recognised for their refined and confident work on the Caroline House kitchen. The judges particularly highlighted the ‘delicate play between black, white and cream that bring a gentle background to the open planned living space.’ The design of the kitchen was honest about its functional use, without dominating the living area of the home.

A technicolour delight from eternally-on-the-money Flack Studio. A Memphis edge is introduced to a family home via this bold bathroom in North Caulfield. Is it a sculpture, or a sink? Or both!
