Glass dissolves structure
to create a secure, highly
transparent exhibition wall.
Michael O’Sullivan of the Vibe Design Group speaks with
Vision editor Peter Hyatt about his firm’s work in
re-building a derelict mansion into a modern day classic.
A hefty budget was never going to get this over
the line or guarantee great results.
Sadly that’s true. There isn’t much that pulls you up as
you drive around the streets of Melbourne – and I’m not
saying this was our intention here. An enormous budget
is not a ticket to success. It can work against you.
IT’S A JOURNEY OF OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM
START TO FINISH; FROM BIG PICTURE FIRST
IMPRESSIONS, RIGHT THROUGH TO THE BACK
OF HOUSE AND EVERYTHING IN-BETWEEN THAT
CAPTURES DAYLIGHT AND VIEWS.

Delivering a house of real cohesion is a tough ask
when you have to keep so much of the original ‘wreck’.
It’s really putting the elements together with design
longevity in mind and be ing critical of the result you
propose. The artistic value of any project can’t be
underestimated. It’s a journey of overall impression
from start to finish; from big picture first impressions,
right through to the back of house and everything in
between that captures daylight and views.
