Northcote ResidenceA moody blue make-over for this sweet and serene Victorian

It’s always a great compliment when an architect specifies Fibonacci for their own home, so we were rightfully chuffed when established and respected architect Lisa Breeze chose our Abstrakt terrazzo for her gentle and assured home renovation project.

Lisa’s “sweet, yet run-down” Victorian cottage needed to be made comfortable for a post-pandemic family lifestyle and, wishing to maintain the integrity of the original cottage, she retained all areas under the original roof, then added a contemporary extension with high sloped ceilings. References to the old home and its surrounds are made via the use of brick and timber, and the continuous use of blue hues throughout both the old and new spaces create a seamless and sophisticated environment. “The colours are soft and calming – moody in the old part of the house, and bright with the natural light of the extension,” says Lisa.


"The light base colour to Abstrakt helped keep the tone bright right down at the ground plane, while the grey-blues complimented the rest of the colour palette beautifully."

In both the kitchen and bathroom, Lisa’s selection of Fibonacci’s Abstrakt 600x600x20 tile is instrumental in nailing that much-attempted yet not always achieved balance between striking and serenity. “The white cement base and the blue aggregate both had major appeal. Our home is small, and built boundary to boundary, so in some areas obtaining natural light was a design challenge. The light base colour to Abstrakt helped keep the tone bright right down at the ground plane, while the grey-blues complimented the rest of the colour palette beautifully.”

In these unprecedented times of supply chain uncertainty, Fibonacci’s promise of ‘Always in Stock, No Lead Times’ was also a major drawcard for Lisa. “The 'no lead time' was very handy. It was reassuring given we were building at the start of the pandemic and there were many concerns at the time about the impact on supply chains,” she says.
