The project

Villa Carmelina, a grand 1889 Victorian Italianate terrace, was bought by Scott Weston in 2016. The home was in a dilapidated state but, for Scott, it represented the opportunity to fulfil a long-held desire to invest his 25 years of architectural practice in his own home.

The main two-storey terrace was restored to its former grandeur, with a few minor adjustments to the interior to accentuate the building’s high ceilings and maximise the natural light. The result is a unique fusion of contemporary design and original Victorian architecture.

To the rear is a modernist two-storey addition in glass and steel containing expansive kitchen and living room plus bedrooms and bathing areas.

The architect

Scott Weston is regarded as one of Australia’s most inspiring architects, with a passion for colour, pattern, texture, art, light, functionality and beautifully crafted, artisanal materials and finishes.

In his meticulous reincarnation of Villa Carmelina, Scott has expressed a long-held philosophy of tailoring spaces to embrace and celebrate the interests and passions of the occupants – he has paid homage to the generations who lived in Villa Carmelina before him while creating a unique and deeply personal living space for he and his partner.

The colour palette

The colour palette for Villa Carmelina was inspired by the remnants of its original 1950s colour scheme – rose pink, acanthus green, lemon chiffon, studio mauve and earl grey. These colours appear in various guises throughout the home – some have been custom-matched by Wattyl and others taken directly from the Wattyl fandeck.
