Interior design studio Heartly has recently completed work on their latest project in Jan Juc, Australia – Jan Juc Acre House. The Jan Juc Acre’s interior decor reacts to the neighborhood and community, the original 1980s home, and the characteristics of the family who resides there. Each of these contexts influenced the choices made in interior design. Retaining the majority of the old building was a priority for both the interior and building designs, driven by our customer.
It was crucial to highlight the historic timberwork, particularly the ceiling and beams, as well as the north-facing clerestory windows, vistas of the surrounding environment, and pool. These original components are honored because they provide context and an anchor for the contemporary additions made throughout the reconstruction. For functionality and to produce a relaxing impression, earthy materials that reflected the location and history of the original building were chosen. Sand is readily swept away on the limestone flooring, which was purposely used both indoors and across the landscape.
A completely one-of-a-kind and customized design was produced as a result of careful consideration for the location, the historic building, and the lively family who resides here. Instead of imposing trends or according to convention, the project rises to meet the design challenge of these objectives by embracing these essential basic features as informative details.
