It’s all about the details inside this 1976 Fasham Johnson home in the north Melbourne suburb of Hurstbridge, lovingly restored by interior designer Catherine Mazzotta.
Mazzotta, who runs design practice Modernist Interiors Eltham, is married to architect Michael Archibald. The pair have updated their family home, which celebrates its 1970s origins with raked timber ceilings, slate flooring and walls of floor-to-ceiling windows.
Mazzotta has modernised the kitchen with bamboo benchtops over form-ply cabinetry, while the large open-plan living room is furnished with vintage midcentury pieces, including armchairs by Noblett Furniture.
Sliding glass doors open living spaces up to three large, north-facing decks that are surrounded by native gardens and trees, home to blue-tongued skinks, parrots and owls.
