A second generation Nexus Designs client, a wonderful brief and thoughtful architect made this project thoroughly enjoyable for everyone involved. Dimitty Andersen designed a clean modern extension to the house with massive steel framed door openings and perfectly placed light shafts. Even the most glamorous elements of this house are actually family friendly.

German gold leaf was wrapped around the bedhead wall, the salon’s chimney breast was clad in mirror and a bathroom was completely clad in rockmelon coloured glass. We selected furniture items from Australian, Italian and Dutch designers, including some tongue in cheek pieces from Moooi and a Zanotta dining table with red lacquered turned legs. A house full of surprises.
