The sofa had to be large and deep enough that the couple and their dog could lay back, watch TV and enjoy the space. So, we had a sectional custom made and upholstered in a heavy duty Kravet fabric.
The main living room becomes a central and multi-functional zone for the entire the family.
Traditional features like the high ceilings, decorative moldings, and parquet flooring take on a softer, modern look when juxtaposed against a contemporary selection of furniture.
The living room also features floor-to-ceiling windows, an original marble mantle, as well as a wood-burning fireplace.
What can't be obviously ascertained from this sleek reading chair? How the Northern sunlight warms the concrete slab floor in winter to help maintain a consistent internal temperature, "regularly achieving 25 degrees Celsius without heating in winter," said the architects. "It was important to create a space where the occupants could enjoy the summer warmth, as well as remaining at ease during the cold Ballarat winters."
In the living room, the horizontal lines of the timber beams at the ceiling echo the bespoke cabinetry that surrounds the gas fireplace. The dining room pendant is the Gubi Semi Pendant.

Silver has also inserted a home office that is located just off of the den.
"I prefer to think of it as a lower level because it no longer has the feel of a basement," explains Silver. A large picture window lets in lots of natural light and frames an atrium filled with succulents.
The opening to the dining area has been increased, and the square footage added to the original footprint has allowed for a grand staircase that now connects the lower level.
Silver opened up and vaulted the ceiling, which instantly created a bright and airy, modern interior. He also centered the picture window and added sliding doors that lead out to two separate outside patios.
In this image the T-shaped plan is clearly visible. The two bedrooms are retained in the head of the "T." The entrance hall, kitchen, and laundry room are set between the focal point of the plan.

Across from the sofa, a concrete fireplace surround is topped with a custom walnut wall treatment.
While the exterior "faithfully interprets the typical formal themes of this Italian region," says the architects, the inside is much more modern and minimalist. Reinforced concrete walls and ceilings meet a red concrete floor, which blends with the courtyard outside.

The team also worked with Nouel to incorporate the expressive maximalism that the couple naturally gravitate toward.
The new addition looks like a refined, modern version of the existing house, which is more than 50 years old.
Bice also added a second master suite at the back of the house, which is accessible by a separate stairwell.
Dining & Living
In the living room, the team raised the firebox, cladded the hearth in a tactile plaster finish, and installed a floating limestone bench that wraps the column. On the left (unseen) is integrated firewood storage, and a cozy reading nook sits on the right. "The bench was designed to be used as a social space/lounge, and is well-used," says Coffey. The wood beams and red brick were scraped and stripped many times to remove the silver paint and reclaim a natural state.
The original flooring was a mix of parquet and carpets, with black slate stone at the entry and in the bathrooms and kitchen. During the renovation, the original HVAC system was replaced with radiant floor-heating technology, and the slab was recasted. The main rooms were then finished with solid walnut parquet throughout.
Additions were made to enlarge the kitchen, study, and family room. The master suite was shifted through the redesign, and a bathroom and walk-in closet were also added. Originally, the home did not have a fireplace. However, the client had grown up with one and wanted to enjoy the qualities associated with a fireplace as the centerpiece of the home.
Living area
In the main living areas, two vertical veils divide the high, inclined ceilings, and also serve as partitions for the kitchen, dining room, and living room without completely separating the volumes. The living room is also connected to an outdoor gazebo.
Horner remembers his first visit to the home: "The architecture in the main living area was fantastic, and we just wanted to preserve that and concentrate on the areas of the home that were ill-considered."
In the living room, the designers preserved the existing Douglas fir paneling on the ceiling and walls, the fireplace, and the firewood niche. The cooler tones in the sofa from Design Within Reach, rug from Kush Rugs, and knitted poufs from SMG Collective balance out the wood and dial up the cozy factor.
The interiors are bright and airy thanks to high wood-paneled ceilings and expansive glazing that open to the outdoors.

Bornstein’s living room features an intriguing collection of furniture. The sofa is made by Swedish manufacturer Ire. The 1970s wood burner was a secondhand store find, and the wood table, by Bruno Mattson, was found in a bin at a recycling station. He inherited the lounge chair from his parents.
Old Herman Miller posters hang on a nearby wall. In the living room, a yellow fiberglass stool by Nanna Ditzel sits alongside a French chain-link floor lamp from the 1940s.
