MLC Boarding House


The transformation of the boarding house at MLC offered us an exciting opportunity to conduct an extensive interior refurbishment of three interconnected buildings on the Claremont campus.

We were fortunate to start with good bones: a beautiful federation Centenary Building, replete with generous volumes and timber details, connecting through to additional boarding houses with breathtaking river views. Our design offers a contemporary interpretation of the grand Homestead and reflects the warmth of the care offered here. Every aspect of the interior has been considered; from the unique bedroom textiles designed by Andrea Barton to the bespoke furniture across both the private rooms and communal spaces.

With a new energy running throughout the interior spaces, the MLC boarding house has been catapulted to the most exciting in Perth.

This project received a commendation at the Australian Interior Design Awards held in Sydney in June, 2016.
