The transformation at Regent has a lot to do with light. The house was laid out in a traditional Victorian format with characteristically dark front rooms. A skylight now spans the length of the kitchen, and the formal rooms open onto the airy new combined living space. A double height light reveal floods the dining room and boys’ room above with additional light.Save this picture!© Anson SmartThe lack of connection to the outdoors has been counteracted by internalising the level change. As a result the combined living space benefits from high ceilings, flowing directly onto the terrace and grassed area beyond once the pocket bi-fold doors are slid away.  Increased ceiling heights, generous volumes and borrowed space combine to create a sense of spaciousness in this relatively narrow site.Save this picture!© Anson SmartSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Anson SmartSlight adjustments to the layout make a considerable difference to not only the feel but the frequency of use of different spaces. The relocation of the laundry to the lower ground floor allows a better connection between inside and outside at ground level. The new combined living room houses one gracious table for family and guests alike, leaving the former dining space to become a well utilised study. Upstairs the second bedroom is now a uniquely detailed ensuite, and the third bedroom enjoys the additional space afforded by the slightly extended foot print below. Save this picture!© Anson SmartCurves act as a common thread between the traditional and contemporary architecture. At ground level, a rounded ceiling connects the formal living room and the new combined living room. The curves feature heavily in this light-filled new space, reappearing upstairs in the ensuite, boys’ bedroom and attic ceiling.Save this picture!© Anson SmartThe finishes are light and neutral in colour to allow the owner’s impressive collection of contemporary art to shine. The materials imbue quality to the project. Brass is a highlight amongst the abundance of pale timber joinery and walls, marble and softly coloured walls.Save this picture!© Anson SmartProject gallerySee allShow lessKompaniya Restaurant / DA bureauSelected ProjectsHouse in Kobe North / FujiwaraMuro ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: Resene, Artedomus, Astra Walker, Bentley Systems, Lysaght Trimdeck, ROYAL OAK FLOORS, Whitecliffe Regent House / Smart Design StudioSave this projectSaveRegent House / Smart Design StudioSave this picture!© Anson Smart+ 38Curated by Paula Pintos Share 2017 “COPY” CopyAbout this officeSmart Design StudioOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSydneyAustraliaPublished on May 28, 2019Cite: “Regent House / Smart Design Studio” 28 May 2019.
