Located in Woollahra, Sydney, this existing free standing Victorian Italianate villa was re-designed and extended to accommodate a Sydney art dealer, and family. A white rendered modern pavilion has been added to the rear of the house, replacing a series of haphazard earlier additions. The house has been designed to function as a home, gallery, workplace and venue for large gatherings. The new interiors and architecture form a canvas for the changing art collections. The original four room Victorian plan, with central hall, iron lace detailed verandah and Italianate chimneys and parapets, have been retained. A large open kitchen and dining space dominates the new extension with a dramatic seven metre long fixed central table.
