Cotter Street Residence transforms a traditional Victorian workers cottage into a refined and dynamic home that reflects the identity of its resident, artist Tom Adair.
Fiona Lynch re-planned the space to accommodate a guest area and intimate private suite on the lower level, opening to a secluded courtyard. Above, an open kitchen, living and dining area presents a welcoming entertainment zone complete with an outdoor deck and terrazzo-clad barbeque plinth.
True to the design sensibility of Fiona Lynch, the home is richly layered with tactile materials. A sophisticated base palette of polished plaster, grey marble, white steel and natural oak is punctuated with playful bursts of rose-tinted mirror, bright colour accents and polished brass details, reflecting the bold and punchy aesthetic of Tom’s neon artworks.
The interior strikes a fine balance between energy and respite, boldness and refinement; an appealing and youthful home that is an expression of Tom’s lifestyle and arts practice.
