What Houzz contributors are saying:
7. Island innovationModernist furniture and 21st-century design have come together to produce this well-executed kitchen/dining zone. While the timber veneer and glossy white surfaces – including the Eames chairs with Eiffel bases – make the room light and clean, the green bulb pendants create a natural link to the outdoor tropical area.
Pettit+Sevitt’s legacy has certainly not come to an end. Recently relaunched with several new designs by Ken Woolley, the Pettit+Sevitt house still maintains its focus on good design, functional living, and efficient planning. In addition, many homeowners continue to renovate, update or extend existing Pettit+Sevitt homes. This house pictured is an extension to a Pettit+Sevitt home located on a steeply sloping site in Hornsby, Sydney. The addition includes a new living pavilion that maintains the simple lines, functional simplicity and modern character of the original Pettit+Sevitt home.TELL USHave you lived in, or do you currently live in, a Pettit+Sevitt house?
