Formerly an Anglican church, the transformation of this Melbourne loft incorporates a contemporary addition and interior fit out that has been compared to a luxury 5 star hotel, oozing theatrical and artistic themes using natural materials such as limestone, marble, granite, reclaimed wood, feature mirrors and a colour palette that is warm and inviting. This multi-level home was designed to incorporate beautiful rooms that seem to merge with one another to create the most graceful and inspiring space for entertaining and enjoying the ambience of volume and light.
Gil Rigaud, a doctor in Fort Lauderdale, wanted to downsize from his 3,000-square-foot house and completely change the way he was living. “I wanted to use every room, simplify, downsize, and get rid of a lot of my stuff,” he explains. “I wanted my home to be comfortable but not overdone; I get overwhelmed by too much stuff.”
