Architecture: Tess Lloyd Before & After

i received an email from kate williams of polli design yesterday with a wonderful before and after project and images.  i knew my readers would appreciate this renovation as much as i have.

Polli designer Tess Lloyd recently renovated a beautiful old house in Sydney. The 100+ year old terrace was sympathetically renovated and updated to retain the heritage features and create a warm, sustainable, sunlit living space for a new family (shortly after the house was renovated, Tess had her first child – a little girl named India). Features include led down lights, water retention tank, cross ventilating louvers, cooling concrete floors and big bifolds and entertaining deck with a North Westerly aspect.

The renovations were designed by all female designers –Tess had the vision, her mum Ro Murray was the architect, Ro Murray’s school friend the interior designer, Ro Murray’s partner Sheri the lighting consultant (which is all incredibly eco friendly), and Sheri’s university friend the colour consultant.

The renovated terrace also became a Polli jewelry design, with Terrace earrings, necklaces, and a brooch.
