Riverside Refurbishment | Architects for Perth, Australia | Claremont, Perth

Located in Claremont, Perth, a riverside townhouse is a coveted property for its idyllic location on the banks of the Swan River. However, after purchasing the townhouse, the clients realized that it had lost its 1970s charm and required refurbishment. To achieve this, forresterarchitects planned to enliven the simple interior with period fixtures and fittings, while creating a modern open-plan environment.

To begin with, the upper floor bedrooms were reconfigured to provide simple ensuite facilities, thereby enhancing the functionality of the space. forresterarchitects then reoriented the living room, kitchen, and dining space to form a new focal point for the house, which would be the ever-changing Swan River. This would create a seamless connection between the interior and the exterior, offering the clients a stunning view of the river. The incorporation of period fixtures and fittings added character and warmth to the space, while the modern open-plan design ensured a seamless flow between the various living areas. The reconfiguration of the upper floor bedrooms ensured that the space was functional and met the clients’ requirements.

The refurbishment created a perfect blend of old-world charm and modern design, offering the clients a comfortable and elegant living space that they could enjoy for years to come. forresterarchitects ensured that the design was in harmony with the location, and the end result was a beautiful riverside home that was both functional and visually appealing.
