Camberwell Residence

This project was a renovation of a Sir Roy Grounds single-level brick house to peel away an existing renovation and reinstate the integrity of the original design. Home to a family of four it needed a good flow through the home, a functional solution for the kitchen and laundry-cum-study, more natural light and a greater connection to the outdoors.

The owner’s love of quirky details, unusual material selections, specific colour preferences and natural finishes meant Doherty Design Studio could inject interest through a rich layering of light and dark materials – custom concrete, sheet cork flooring (cut into tile-shaped panels with rebated edges to express the joins in a herringbone pattern), terrazzo, bluestone, hoop pine ply, blackbutt, brass and perforated stainless steel.

Swinburne Avenue

Deep wood tones, bronze mirrored finishes and black-and-white geometric detailing bring a classic, but warm, edge to this contemporary two-storey home by Craig Rosetti Architects. We were asked to create an interior with the smart detailing and feel of a boutique luxury hotel, while balancing the practical demands of a family with two small children. The owners also wanted to complement the strong, modern lines of the design and to enhance the spacious feel of the interior.

Commercial Road Residence

A complete interior update, kitchen re-design, new set of stairs and a greater connection between the courtyard and the internal rooms was required to update this two-storey single-fronted townhouse.

Landscape designer Nathan Burkett was brought in for the courtyard renovation and took his lead from Doherty Design Studio’s monochromatic interior palette to visually connect the space with the interior.

Ashburton Residence

We collaborated with Chris Viola Architects to convert the rear of a 1940s tudor-style house into a modern light-filled home. The renovation created an ensuite, open-plan living-dining-kitchen space with study nook, plus an additional living area with home office. The renovation is a statement of restraint and subtlety.
