Hawthorn Residence Two

Doherty Design Studio was engaged to breathe new life in this four-level converted 1910 church. The residence forms half of the building and is part of a larger residential complex redeveloped some 20 years ago. The brief centered on creating a modern sophisticated interior with timeless appeal. Integral was good spatial flow and more natural light. The home needed to be more usable and friendly for a family of five. An outdoor bathing experience was high on the owners’ wish list.

The upgrade delivered strikes a balanced approach to creating a new pared back aesthetic while respecting the home’s heritage. Underpinning the look and feel is the concept of restraint and refinement.

Beechworth Residence

Refined meets rustic: this contemporary two-level, three-bedroom home in country Victoria was designed and built for a young Melbourne family as their weekender and holiday retreat. The solid granite form of the building is complemented by an atmospheric pitched roof, exposed rafters, and is contrasted with a refined mix of materials and textures. The light-filled interior is restrained and pared back, yet layered. Continuity is achieved through the considered repetition of colours, surfaces and materials. Timber panelling, bespoke joinery, custom-concrete benchtops, terrazzo floors, hand-glazed tiles, ceramic washbasins, tan leather accents and bronze tapware all sit together in quiet harmony. Our clients time living in Japan informed some of the areas including the intimate dining nook, and the selection of finishes.

Fitzroy Residence

This newly built three-level terrace in Fitzroy by Inarc Architects was designed for a couple downsizing from their family home in Kew. Doherty Design Studio was tasked with the complete interior planning – design and furniture selection – to create a luxurious inner city retreat. Light, a strong emphasis on entertaining and a connection to the garden and outdoors was important. The interior resolution successfully melds the bold rectilinear form of the architecture through a refined play of materials, textures and forms. Muted earthy colours, custom joinery and bespoke detailing provide continuity while ensuring each space has its own identity.

Ba Xa

Brave, sassy, sweet and gentle merge in Ba Xa – a casual Vietnamese café created for the International Terminal at Melbourne Airport in collaboration with Techne Architects. 

The brief and parameters were complex. The design needed to embody Ba Xa (meaning female village chief or wifey – a figure that is nurturing, strong and fun), as well as reflect Melbourne’s dynamic food scene and the punchy flavours of Vietnamese cuisine.
