This was a concept I created along with interior designer Jacinta Chesworth. The original builders hadn’t quite gotten the brief, and the client wanted something to illustrate her direction and ideas for the build. So Jacinta and I created a 3D model of the original space, before redesigning it and replacing exterior walls with glass to bring in natural light. I selected finishes and elements for the interior and exterior to match the client’s aesthetic, and created several visualisations based on our improved model to illustrate the look and feel of the space.
I also worked with the client to create wayfinding signage for the front gates, lawns and exterior areas and made several mockups of these which are still in development.
Though many changes were made throughout the build, there are a few elements that remain from this initial concept, and you can currently visit the newly completed cellar door in Pokolbin.
