Old Probate Office

Architect/ Designer: Native Architects
Client/Developer: Owner
Builder: Coates Construction & Joinery

The Old Probate Office – another Victorian edifice – has been divided into two houses for many years.  The current project is a reworking of one part of an earlier conversion.  It now provides an elegant and spacious 3-bedroom family home.   There are few structural modifications – apart from a delightfully ingenious mezzanine study in glass and steel, inserted above the stairwell.  The design of every part of the interior successfully combines the best of the original craftsmanship with an entirely modern design sensibility – in composition, colour, finishes and furnishing – all with a distinctly Japanese twist.  The result is a co-ordinated sequence of rooms that is, at the same time, homely, practical, gracious, well-ordered, – and quite simply beautiful.
