Orama wins the AIA Hugh and Eva Buhrich Award

The award winning transformation of ‘Orama’ , a gracious Victorian villa in Sydney’s Woollahra, involved the enhancement and extension of an historic house to create a comfortable family home, and a setting for the client’s art collection. Luxurious in space and detail, the success of design has been met with multiple award wins. More on Orama here.

Good things come in small packages. With simplicity and elegance the design of this space cleverly incorporates six rooms into one. Kitchen, dining, living, study, bathroom and laundry, all of which were once an awkward warren of small rooms at the rear of this Victorian terrace house, have been transformed into a beautifully modern kitchen and living space. The end result opens up the house to the courtyard garden with a seamless transition between inside and out. More on the Chapple Residence here.
