Originally designed by the renowned, late architect, Wayne Gillespie, the Pickford Residence has undergone a seamless extension by architectural practice Watson Young Architects. Built by Bloom Projects, this residence perfectly blends its original features with contemporary details, creating a fresh and luxurious family home.
Framed around an incredible courtyard space, this U-shaped home enables a real sense of connectedness, whilst also offering a whole lot of space for the kids to play and the parents to relax. With interiors by Lisa Buxton Interiors, each room beautifully considers the details from the buildings past, such as the use of the classic Gillespie brass. We love the way this beautiful material palette pairs so flawlessly with the pale tones found throughout and the accents of bold greys and blues, creating a calming interior that adds warmth and comfort to every space in the home.
