This Mid-Century Home Has Been Simply Updated for an Art Lover

Amanda is an avid art collector and curator, but her Mid-Century home in Ormond was becoming small, and the need for more space for both her art and family was paramount. Foomann Architects were engaged to design a sensitive extension to the Modernist home, originally designed by architect C.C Sainsbury in 1957.

The interior was kept simple, with bright white walls and timber accents, with a touch of green in the kitchen splashback. The staircase however is the hero of the home, with integrated storage, a laundry behind and an oversized window with a view to the neighbouring birch tree. This staircase was a complicated 3D puzzle, which really tested the architects.

Note – This was my very first home tour video, while still trying to figure things out. The audio gear used was not up to scratch, and so apologies for the poor quality. Rest assured that other videos are not like this.
