Clifton Gardens House

This heritage home in Sydney’s historic Clifton Gardens happily collides up-to-the-minute contemporary design features with the pre-existing structure of yesteryear. With a rich tonal palette of deep terracotta, soft pewters and off-whites, the designers at Albert Hogget Architecture selected Dinesen European oak timber flooring – a solid timber solution that allowed creative teams to play with form and scale thanks to the boards’ impressive width. With few knots and delicate veining, extensive use of Dinesen oak throughout lends this property a sense of grandeur and timelessness, reflected perfectly in oak’s inherent vitality.
