The 1886 double-brick Boom Time mansion was subject to heritage protection but was in very good shape structurally, with solid bluestone foundations. It had its original front but was lumbered with an ugly 1990s extension with low ceilings at the rear.The aim of the 20-month renovation was to honour the historical significance of the frontage while replacing the extension with a structure that spans three levels and is a display of modern resplendence, with open spaces, simple geometric shapes, and an abundance of light. In particular, the clients wanted a flawless interior transition from the restored house to the extension, which would house a pool, gym, and outdoor pavilion, all on top of a basement. They also required a series of flexible spaces that opened to landscaped areas. While Rakocevic connected with the couple and shared their vision for the property, their relationship had a Eureka moment when she began to show them 3D models rather than 2D plans. “As soon as we took a 3D model and walked the clients through the space, that triggered the progress,” she says. It fast-tracked their vision and eventually led to her young firm taking over the interior design for the project in addition to the architecture. The build was big in scope yet highly detailed in practice. A case in point was the hallway panels; some needed replacing but were impossible to find so the builder took an original mould from cardboard then made a silicone mould from a panel to enable him to produce more.Pendant light: RH Modern in LA; engineered-timber Listone Giordano flooring: Winspear Group
