A big congratulations to Fiona Lynch, who took out the award for Designer of the Year at this years Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA). On top of this award, Fiona Lynch also received a High Commendation in the Single Residential category for the Fitzroy House residence.

Fitzroy House – The Lara Boot Factory in Hargreaves Street, Fitzroy, was converted into living space by Ivan Rijavec in the 1980′S. Fiona Lynch was approached by the new owner to create a private and relaxing retreat, one that offered space and storage for his extensive collection of books and art, in the midst of a bustling neighbourhood.


Blending old and new, the house embraces a refined interior, with bold use of materials and bespoke joinery, while respectfully preserving the architectural elements.


Delta Light Spy Clips where used throughout the project. The pure cylindrical form and matt black finish work well to blend the old and new. The use of spots of light within the lighting design, creates a play between light and shadow, which heightens the depth of material palette at night.
