This project involved a major renovation to a magnificent 1932 Spanish Mission house by inter-war architect Frederick Glynn Gilling. Our approach was to restore the building to its essence by removing anything extraneous and celebrating its core features. Within these pared back interiors we created a new layer of contemporary details that sensitively respond to the Mediterranean style.

The extent of the project included the creation of an entirely new basement level with arched doorways to the garden, a new pool, an underground tunnel from the garage to a lift in the centre of the house and all new interiors. Vue De La Cote is a heritage-listed house with substantial significance approaching it’s centenary and this renovation equips it for many more years to come.
