Brunswick House is a minimalist midcentury modern residence located in Brunswick, Australia, designed by Winwood Mckenzie Architecture.

Renovation projects provide the opportunity to reimagine a residence so that it represents the lives and values of its owner. It provides an opportunity to create a built manifestation and realisation of a personal way of living.

The new living and study spaces, are spaces that simultaneously create a cosy refuge and an open outdoor shelter that connects the living spaces to the native garden. The spaces are configured to allow both modes of living, one insular, protected and focused on the fireplace and study; the second open to the fresh air, abundant light and vegetation of the garden.

The duality of the space gives the project a complex richness where two seemingly contradictory and incompatible qualities of space are condensed into a single enriching experience. The design references the clients background and imagines a future quality of life, combing a mixture of midcentury influence and contemporary items such as the Ora Desk Lamp in White Champagne finish. The result exists peacefully in the present between both.
