The beautiful Tree House project is a modern and refined home where light, airiness and elegance are central. The interior with a few retro details was designed by the Australian Madeleine Blanchfield Architects
Madeleine Blanchfield Architects consists of a team of eight architects and interior designers and is based in Paddington, Australia. They always strive to create beautiful, elegant and timeless spaces through an architecture that has depth and integrity. With their landscapes and interiors, the studio brings warmth and joy to any space. One of their latest projects Tree House is a fine representation of their elegant and welcoming style.
In Tree House, interior and exterior merge and a light and warm atmosphere prevails
Tree House is the home of founder Madeleine Blanchfield herself and is located near Bronte Beach. The light-filled residence exudes airiness, cosiness and style and has been given a unique layout. The living spaces are located on the top floor. Thanks to glass sliding panels between the rooms you get a very open feeling and there is a lot of natural light in every room. Because the living spaces are on the top floor, there is also a beautiful view of the surroundings, trees or the sky everywhere. Together with raw materials, a soft colour palette and beautiful views, the abundance of light creates a calm and airy atmosphere and a strong sense of place. ‘The materials are used in their raw form, but were chosen for their inherent beauty,’ the studio explains. Thanks to the large windows and the palette of colours and materials, the interior and exterior blend into one another and the residence is presented as ‘one spatial whole in the landscape’. The interior is elegant and modern with a few retro details here and there. A light and warm colour palette and a lot of wood and glass were used. Tree House became a home to interact with each other and nature. ‘The project shows the influence of design on family life. It re-evaluates the generally accepted standards for a house and its relationship to the site. It shows how boundaries between inside and outside can be broken, how rooms can be reconsidered and their interconnections flexible’. Images © Anson Smart / Design: Madeleine Blanchfield Architects
