Reinventing a Victorian Grand Italianate Terrace to pay homage to the original structure of the building while also bringing it into the modern day is no easy task. However, Architect Prineas managed to achieve it with aplomb in House Elysium in Sydney’s Hollis Park.

The end result of excavations, full restoration of the existing structure and the creation of a two storey extension is a modern home that celebrates the classic elements of the original terrace. The extended living room combined with the 2 storey addition has connected all levels to the garden terrace and allowed for the lush exterior to be enjoyed from many areas of the home.

Materials have been carefully chosen for their modesty and sustainability with plywood used throughout many of the rooms in the house. The clever use of the honey coloured timber lining the walls/storage cabinets in the living room and kitchen contrast beautifully with the otherwise black/grey interiors. The black walls, door frames and accents of black on the furniture inject great depth to the rooms with the softer white and grey additions balancing the palette out perfectly.
