I love ‘old’ Kingston! The interesting mix of architecture, the heritage homes tucked in between the medium density, the light that filters through the spectacular tree-lined streets and the beauty of the iconic Inner South buildings on Green Square Kingston.
Renewed interest in mid-century design has inspired older style townhouses to be sought after for their generous functional floor plan, efficient use of space and their light-filled interiors.
For lovers of this design, beautiful organic interiors and life in an established Canberra precinct, howitt.home is one to experience.
This wonderful three bedroom townhouse delivers open plan living spaces and sectional geometry seamlessly flowing over two levels. Unpretentious and understated from the outside, the design effortlessly balances form and function, flooded with natural light and multiple outdoor courtyards.
A simple palette relying on rich natural timber, stone, exposed brick and uniform coloured tiles creates unity whilst the natural white walls ensure the house is light and airy. Tree-top bedrooms draw nature inside the home.
Subtle, thoughtful renovations have seen the home remain honest and have retained the harmony and balance. A modern designer kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances provides a haven for the home chef overlooking the streetscape.
A recent quote by author/architect Stephen Crafti ‘ well-designed homes from the 1970’s are seen as ‘future heritage’- his words recognise what once may have been considered old and celebrates the new found love and appreciation for stunning design with relevant livability.
