Toorak House by Lucy Bock Design Studio

  • Lucy Bock Design Studio welcome us inside a bold and bespoke alteration and addition project in Toorak, Melbourne.

    Toorak House by Lucy Bock Design Studio sees the transformation of a period home in one of Melbourne’s most sought-after suburbs. The light-filled home is positioned among the treetops, with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the tree-lined streets. 

    Maximising natural light and accessibility, the new kitchen, living and dining area radiates clean lines, bold geometric forms and hints of luxury; a testament to Lucy Bock Design Studio’s signature hand at detail and curation.

    The kitchen features the Apparatus White Marble Neo Vessel on a custom stone benchtop.

    The home’s base monochromatic colour palette is punctuated with accents of jewel tones such as deep purple and navy. A bespoke stone kitchen island bench gently draws attention through its subtle dark grey patterning, running along the wall and repeating itself in the adjacent dining room. Gaggenau appliances are cleverly concealed in the butler’s pantry, allowing the unique upright kitchen cabinet to take centre stage. 

    A partition wall with storage separates the kitchen from the dining room without enclosing the space. The custom ribbed-glass cabinet reveals dedicated craftsmanship, paired with quality furniture pieces such as the T12 Dining Table from Hay and the La Pipe Dining Chair by Ida Linea Hildebrand.

    Overlooking the balcony, the gently-layered living room combines a variety of materials such as brick, timber and stone. The Strips Sofa for Arflex is upholstered in a rich eggplant velvet; a nod to the eminent sense of opulence throughout the home. Clad in the same marble as the kitchen, a modern fireplace provides comfort and warmth.

    In the dining room, a HAY dining table and the La Pipe Dining Chair by Ida Linea Hildebrand are illuminated by a Lindsey Adelman pendant light.

    Notable pieces in the living room include the Strips Sofa by Cini Boeri and Marenco Sofa by Mario Marenco, both for Arflex, the Space Coffee Table by Ligne Roset and the Atollo 235 for Oluce.

    As you step away from the communal areas of the home, the whitewashed chevron flooring alternates to a flat-laid chocolate timber floor. A spectrum of pink distinguishes the private areas of the home, featured in the Osso Chair by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and artwork by Marisa Purcell. In the bathroom, black small-format tiles line the walls, complemented by an anthracite floating stone bench and under-mount sink.

    Restrained luxury reigns supreme in the Toorak House. Exquisite materiality and a richly layered palette form an inviting home that prioritises timeless living.
