This Hackney Home Designed by Biasol Has The Blues

Biasol retained the original features of the home, connecting its history with contemporary architecture.

I already know what you’re going to say. “Not another blue kitchen Tiff! Come on!” Well yes, it is another blue kitchen, but what I particularly love about this Hackney home that I gleefully discovered on The Modern House is that almost every room is cleverly anchored with the blue. No other colour speaks to me the way this particular blue does, so I for one completely understand why the architects chose it for this project.

Warm timber floors and white walls fill this open plan Georgian home with light.

Those Aussie architects really do have it down. I’m always in awe of what some of the design studios in Australia are coming up with, particularly having great weather and light on their side. So it’s interesting to see how Melbourne based studio Biasol tackled this Georgian maisonette and its typically dark interior. As you can see, they did away with the traditional layout, opening it up into a light-filled living space. 

Original sash windows, timber floors and cast iron radiators connect the building to its past, whilst bright white walls and contemporary furniture connect its residents to modern living. Minimally styled to accentuate the craftsmanship of the architecture, you can truly appreciate the quality of the materials Biasol has chosen to use.

The freestanding island in the kitchen has been elevated with brass legs to allow the space to continue to flow beneath. Marble features heavily across this property with black Grigio Carnico kitchen surfaces and herringbone Carrara in the bathrooms. Accents of brass in the hardware and mixer tap enhance the rich, blue cabinetry, echoing in the living and dining spaces through wall mounted Flos IC lights. I’m completely in love, are you?
