Max and Kirby had a twinkle in their eyes when they told me they were looking for an element of surprise in their Footscray home. The twisty, turn-y floor plan leant itself to creating a series of different ‘destination’ rooms with individual personalities.
It’s all fun and games in theory, but creating multiple themed rooms comes with risk and without a clear strategy Max and Kirby’s home interior could easily have fallen down the rabbit hole, and into a childlike mess. I avoided this by creating balance within the home, keeping the hallway very simple, then building to a crescendo in each room.
Max and Kirby’s design brief really gave us a chance to put the team’s creativity through its paces. While not to everyone’s taste, their home definitely embodies the element of fun and surprise they were looking for, with every new twist and turn leading the visitor to a new ‘destination unknown’.
