The Spanish Mission House project transforms a Spanish style home through the application of 21st Century design and brutalist influence objects.

Designed by Kennon.Studios and styled by Manuela Millan, this residence gets a modern makeover with respect to existing Spanish-mission style features.

While designing a house, more often than not, architects and designers get lost in the process of trying to create a grand architectural statement. However, as seen in Spanish Mission House by the Melbourne-based design firm, Kennon.Studios,  the eclecticism evident by mixing old styles with modern tastes can amplify simple pleasures within a home, featuring the Hemera Desk Lamp, designed by Ross Gardam for debuting New Volumes Collection #01.

Carrying a sense of delicacy that is rare to Melbourne’s homes, Kennon.Studios continues the ‘lightness’ by stripping back north-facing walls to overcome the existing awkward flooring arrangements. Opening up the flow between living and kitchen areas through arched doorways also nods to the buildings past while allowing the dining area to be the house’s focal point. With an ability to easily transform into a formal or casual space, the dining table accommodates for any anticipated activity the client may require.
