Designers Hecker Guthrie were called in to refresh this former corner pub in inner Melbourne to suit the needs of a young family

A former corner pub gets a beautiful Scandi makeover

Who designed the renovation? Designers Hecker Guthrie.

Where is it? Melbourne, Australia.

What were the key changes? A new kitchen, powder room, study, children’s rooms, staircase and deck, plus cosmetic upgrades.

What’s the overall scheme? Neutral luxe.

A simple cosmetic upgrade soon gave way to a more extensive renovation including a new kitchen, powder room, study and children’s bedrooms, a new staircase and rooftop deck. The existing Skyrange Windows industrial doors and windows provided the starting point for a crisp, Scandinavian-style interior.

A neutral colour palette is given added depth with limed oak floorboards and Carrara marble, stylish furniture and lighting.
