JBC Residence | Brighton, VIC


in Interiors, Residential

The JBC Residence is a 1930's Edwardian home in Brighton completely overhauled by the award winning designers Mim Design in collaboration with architects Nixon Tulloch Fortey (NTF).  

The extension of original home by NTF gave the home an expansive linear exterior and achieved the goal of creating light easy spaces inside for modern and contemporary living.

Blending the old and the new, Senior Designer Kristiina Reeve seamlessly melded the old and the new of the home creating a clean and minimalist design throughout the family and working spaces of the house.

Appreciating modern design and the linear nature of the exterior, the clients were excited to use these elements as inspiration for the interior. Large sliding panels and boards created concealed spaces and storage areas adding to the clean lines of the home and increasing functionality. Timber flooring and joinery with tones of chalky white and grey stone added to the clean sophistication of the home. The sophistication was given even more of a boost with the luxurious furnishings in dark timber and deep hues of blue and purple throughout.

Mim Design were required to completely redesign all interior spaces. The brief was simple...to create a restrained, yet elegant home.

The beauty of the extension was truly found in the expansion and lightness of the various spaces. Opening the attic up allowed for the creation of the childrens sanctuary; a rumpus room, accomodation and living spaces. Initially intended on providing the younger residents with their own retreat - the space is filled with natural light and provides such calm and warmth that it has quickly become a favourite for the whole family.

JBC Residence really is the perfect balance of old and new, sophisticated yet functional; architectural, modern and with every bit of warmth and comfort you would could wish for in a family home.
