帕斯夸里-库克（Pasquale Cook ）对墨尔本埃尔斯滕威克（Elsternwick）的这座家庭住宅进行了改造。自 20 世纪 90 年代以来，该住宅一直保持原貌，工作室利用富有想象力的选材，并引入了一些细节，与这一时期住宅的美感和个性相得益彰。
Pasquale Cook has reinvented this family home in Melbourne’s Elsternwick. Untouched since the 1990’s, the studio drew on an imaginative selection of materials and introduced details that complement the beauty and personality of the period residence.
Bringing the rear half of the house back to its bones, the layout was reconfigured to deliver a more generous and impactful space, from the living, dining and kitchen areas, informed by the client’s style of living.
Highly textured materials, a soft tonal palette and deft architectural interventions, such as the deliberate lowering of the bulkhead over the kitchen and library wall, worked to create a warm, harmonious quality that didn’t interfere with its airy proportions.
Layering of tactile materials—handmade tiles, custom vellum sconces designed by Pasquale Cook, dark oak veneer and woven cane—reintroduced the character and elegance that had previously run through the home, giving it a sympathetic yet contemporary feel. Walls were painted in a soft dove grey alongside a tonally matching glazed terracotta splashback.
为了平衡宽敞的天花板高度，帕斯夸里和库克在整个居室中运用了各种尺度。超大尺寸的家具和装饰灯，如让-普罗维（Jean Prouvé）设计的 Potence 壁灯，优雅地延伸至整个空间。
To balance the generous ceiling height, Pasquale and Cook played with scale throughout the home. Oversized furniture and decorative lighting—such as the Potence wall light by Jean Prouvé, which elegantly reaches across space—explored and capitalised on the living area’s grand proportions and spatial experience.
Ample natural light floods the living area, alongside a view of the pool and garden thanks to new, expansive steel-framed glazing. Even the laundry door adjoining the living room was replaced with a new, steel-framed glazed entrance to introduce more afternoon light into the room.
浴室沿袭了起居室的风格，巧妙地采用了一系列中性色调。包括牛皮纸壁灯、Agape Narciso 镜子、手工釉面砖和薄纱亚麻窗帘在内的天然饰面给人的感觉是粗犷而非时尚。帕斯夸里-库克（Pasquale Cook）改造后的房屋精致典雅，通过质感和亲和力重新唤醒了这座老式住宅的个性。
The bathroom follows the living room’s lead, expertly layering a series of neutrals. The natural finishes including vellum wall lights, an Agape Narciso Mirror, hand-glazed tiles and gauzy linen curtains feel more rugged than sleek. The transformational and refined renovation by Pasquale Cook has revived this period home, reigniting its character through texture and intimacy.
