Edgy, industrial & architecturally reimagined with a one-of-a-kind designer rear studio.
Bringing daring design to Dover Street, Number 21’s well-hidden character façade may still hint at a 1925 bungalow, yet its dramatic, architectural overhaul begs to differ…
And its impressive 9kW solar capacity with Fronius inverter and Tesla Powerwall certainly says 21st century.
But back in 1995, the skillion-roofed rear studio became Adelaide design #1 for Troppo Architect’s founding director, Phil Harris. Come 2017, Julia Wetherell of Weave Architects threw the 3-bedroom home an edgy style revival to unlock the ultimate family entertainer’s dream.
In came polished concrete, vaulted ceilings, and a feature lightwell to its industrial living end as banquette dining joined a commercial style galley kitchen perfecting sleek integration.
Bosch and ASKO appliances, a commercial food grade stainless benchtop, suspended shelves and servery windows brought the easy to indoor/outdoor entertaining.
With it, comes brilliant accomplices; a pizza oven, paved patio, kid’s cubby and irrigated, landscaped grounds forming a private sanctuary under mature trees for social nights in.
With period features still prominent – leadlight, fretwork and Baltic pine floors headline the central hallway leading to 3 bedrooms, each with decorative fireplaces and a contemporary influence courtesy of custom robes, tilt and turn European style triple glazed windows, plantation shutters and ceiling fans.
As chic as it is functional in its bedroom company, the family bathroom wears its matte black tapware with a wash of full height tiles under a lightwell glow; a 2nd WC off the laundry.
And whatever use you give the ambient studio out back, enjoy its passive heating and cooling qualities, natural light and clerestory windows supported by split system climate control, keeping its basement as a cellar, workshop, or out of sight storage.
Look past Dover you can’t – moments to The Avenues and Norwood Foodland, Magill Road and The Parade, with unrivalled eastern suburbs school choice and city reach from an architectural one-of a kind…
