We are excited to share that on Friday evening d'Estaville was awarded a commendation at the Victorian Architecture Awards for Heritage Architecture.
With the original house built in 1859, this latest adaption carefully combines original heritage fabric with a contemporary family home.
From the jury:
"Working within strict statutory constraints, NTF Architecture skillfully balance the weight of the past and the sensibilities of the present, to create a contemporary family home.
The open front fence and garden generously return this stately home to its Kew streetscape, reinstating the original approach to the front door and showcasing a WWII air- raid shelter repurposed as a wine cellar.
The interior celebrates the house’s original fabric, whilst boldly transplanting a well-delineated 21st Century architecture into the bluestone shell."
