Beautiful Interior Design

Today’s inspiration comes from this truly magical project called Melfort Townhouse by Conrad Architects. The exquisite restrained materials palette and minimal aesthetic creates a timeless and elegant interior. The result of this exacting approach is the creation of elegant, refined residences that unites characteristics of classic architecture with an aesthetic that is at once sophisticated and distinguished. Defined by outstanding quality, this project is approached independently yet unified by a design philosophy that seeks to create a lasting impact through architectural and interior design excellence.

Celebrated for an exacting approach to the creation of refined, elegant residences, the practice demonstrates a respect for the long tradition of architecture while taking a holistic approach to the design process. This new project exemplifies Conrad Architect’s commitment to pursuing architecture that is classically minimal and restrained, yet layered with a depth of emotion, sensitively balancing the heritage and the contemporary.

A grand Georgian-style residence (circa 1935), Melfort is reimagined by Conrad Architects as five townhouses with a deep respect for site heritage and context. The richness of character that has developed over time – Georgian style – is characterized by balance. The symmetrical with classical proportions, and ornamentation is used sparingly.

The interior design was approached with a distinctly European sensibility, showcasing restraint, yet with moments of fine detailing. A soft, neutral palette is expressed through oak flooring and kitchen joinery, with beautiful Cararra marble used throughout kitchens, bathrooms and ornate fireplaces. Joinery was consciously conceived as distinct furniture pieces, reading as contemporary furniture elements within a historical interior.

With a beautifully curated selection of furniture and lighting throughout, the two living areas have a luxurious feel, with rich texture and classic detailing. The one above features the Tom Verellen Thibaut XL Sofa in white linen upholstery and Geta coffee table by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Galerie kreo. The incredible light that hangs above is the Studio Arrow pendant in brass and calfskin by Apparatus. In the living room, the wonderful curves of the Mass Productions Dandy Sofa is offset by the square lines of the two Gerrit Rietveld Utrecht Chairs. The Kelly Wearstler Tribute Stool and artwork by Richard Serra give the space a graphic touch, while rugs by Armadillo & Co give both rooms further warmth and texture.

While a common design language was employed throughout, the layering of Georgian detailing was omitted from the new structure to avoid any sense of reproduction.

The elegant aesthetic continues through to an inviting outdoor area which is furnished with stunning pieces by Vincent Van DuysenB&B Italia and Minotti. With incredible renders created by Third Aesthetic, it will be wonderful to see this incredible project come to life.
