Brighton Residence

Doherty Design Studio delivered an elegant overhaul of a 1901 solid brick/stucco home in Brighton. The double-storey home had an important heritage overlay, its significance owing to the fact it's one of the original homes built in the area.

The owners' brief centred on Doherty Design Studio creating a family home that would be theirs for the long haul. They loved the home's period style and original architectural features. So it was essential the contemporary upgrade be sympathetic to the home’s origins.

Hawthorn Residence

Doherty Design Studio have re-invigorated the interiors of an 1980's designed home, by Cocks & Carmichael Architects.

The designers chose to embrace many of the 1980's elements, and play up the existing features – glass bricks, grey terrazzo flooring, whilst still injecting a contemporary renovation to suit the young family of five.

Gewurzhaus QVM

Tucked into a tiny 27sqm, the new Queen Victoria Market store is all about ‘self serve’ with country-of-origin spice wrapping around two sides of the space. This design references the traditional spice markets of exotic locations throughout the world, but answers the owners’ desire for a contemporary take on traditional German styling through materiality.

Caulfield South Residence

The owners of this, L-shaped home engaged Doherty Design Studio to devise a design solution to convert their humble single-storey residence into a well-equipped, contemporary home that will work to better service the young couple and their young child's needs.
It was important for the new design to be in keeping with the modest nature of the original architecture, as well as provide a calm, relaxed atmosphere through a natural bent and a strong connection to the outdoors.
