On the blog today is a beautiful home tour – Toorak 2 House.  Built in 1983 this home has undergone major renovations by the clever duo and award winning firm, Robson Rak Architects and Interior Designers.

The homeowners wanted to amend the faux stylising of the 80’s whilst maintaining the restrained essence of the home and modernise where necessary.

A minimal palette of materials were used throughout the home from steel doors and windows, granite bench tops and floors, and timber flooring and joinery.  Perhaps one of the best features are the 7.5 metre steel framed pivot doors that lead you outside to the garden terrace, creating the ultimate entertainers space.

The major renovation involved stripping the house  back to its core, removing all finishings including windows, doors and those unnecessary stylised features.  The result, a functional, dynamic home for years to come.
