The Local Project
Quarry Hill House is a contemporary family home in the regional Victorian city of Bendigo. Featuring an extensive interior fit-out by Chelsea Hing, this project demonstrates the studio’s ability to enhance the ideas embedded in the existing architecture by reimagining spatial sequences and introducing a palpable sense of energy inspired by the client’s lifestyle.
French oak boards have been used with gusto; Truffle clads the walls on both levels, whilst Cloud wraps the ceiling and floor between. The junction of Truffle’s dark chocolate tones and Cloud’s light oak finish is visually pleasing, and Chelsea attests to the value of this material in the resulting energy of the space. “I really can’t underscore enough the importance of the timber in doing the heavy lifting here – it’s a significant element, and we were able to push this outcome thanks to Made by Storey’s offering,” she says.
