The new old \ Jessica Liew

• April 6, 2013

The owner’s love of antiquity and art has resulted in a home that radiates character, honesty and age.

With a blank canvas and in a mixed context – came the brief to create a new dwelling that for a modern lifestyle but with the charm of an old home – “The new old”.

The principle of ‘Wabi-Sabi’, the beauty of imperfection, was employed.

There is a simple beauty in each recycled tumbled brick used. The rake joints expose the cracks, blemishes and broken corners of each individual brick. The matt white paint complements other natural materials used including timber, marble and bluestone.
