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.
