Harbour House

This house in Sydney’s Rose Bay is an example of the client, architect and interior designer understanding the value in breathing new life into existing architecture rather than building from the ground up.

Spring Restaurant

Spring is an extraordinary restaurant fit-out in London’s Somerset House, which has re-calibrated the city’s dining experience. “London restaurants have a tendency towards the masculine and right from the outset this was to be light, feminine and uplifting’, says Briony. Alongside the client, her sister chef Syke Gyngell, she undertook

Elizabeth Bay Apartment

This Sydney apartment, with its view of the harbour and access to natural light was in need of an interior update.

Little Manly

This project involved the renovation of a ten-year-old waterfront house with a client of longstanding.

Art House

“When a client is as enthusiastic about colour as I am it means we can achieve some really great results”, says Briony of this house in Sydney’s Woollahra.

Bellevue Hill House

This established property in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs illustrates a long-term commission where Briony Fitzgerald has worked on different rooms in the house over a period of five years.

Woollahra House

‘This was a small renovation in a house with a great structure where we were able to manipulate what was there to create a much more liveable and uplifting interior’, says Briony.

Inside Out House

A very contemporary concrete extension to the rear of a Bronte Federation house posed both a problem and an opportunity.

Holiday House

Briony often says that a house tells you what it needs, and this is an example where working into the original character of the house she has expanded its footprint and re-ordered the interior.

St Helenas

Working alongside architect Nadine Alwill, and landscape designer William Dangar, the interior design of this rural property had to match the robust honesty of the materials - black stained timbers, rammed earth and stone.

Vaucluse House

This is an example of a generous house in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs taken back to an interior shell of dark floors and white walls, and then built up with new joinery, furniture, lighting and soft furnishings.

Killcare Beach House

This concrete beach house by MCK Architecture is designed in a tapering form to maximise the views over the beach while masking those of the road.

Collector’s House

This was a special project where the client, with a love of art, wanted to embrace the colour pink for a study and workroom that had to be a beautiful, light-filled space.

Crafted House

This beautifully positioned Federation-style house on Sydney’s harbour had great bones – unfortunately some were in the wrong place making for less than ideal living arrangements.

Terrace House

This was an exercise in maximising space in a narrow inner-city terrace. The handsome façade was painted in a mix of pale and charcoal grey with a shot of apple green on the front door, to echo the colour of the wattle in the garden.

Bondi House

The re-imagining of this Federation duplex has produced a jewel-box of colour, comfort and calm.

Round House

This house was designed in the 1960s by an American architect John Amory who was a great friend of Briony’s mother.

Neutral Bay House

The clients embraced colour – the hot pink Pyrolave kitchen bench top, a chartreuse covered button-back chair in the bedroom and eau de nil walls in the workroom.

Heritage House

This house has retained all the gravitas and design pedigree of its original creator – Professor Leslie Wilkinson - who set up the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Sydney in the 1920s. This is one of a handful of the best houses from an architect who is quoted

Shelley Beach House

The task with this beautifully sited coastal house on the North Shore was to give it a major facelift: to rework the existing grey, monolithic interior and introduce an upbeat and colourful design treatment.

Waterside House

This architecturally imposing harbour-side mansion required balance in terms of introducing human-scale, warmth and intimacy to the expansive property.

Balmoral House

A new house in Balmoral by Corben Architects, with compelling water views, was designed with an emphasis on off-form concrete, rendered brickwork and stone clad walls.

Tropical House

This house is a good example of how Briony endeavours to tune into the aesthetic her clients, understand what it is that appeals to them and deliver above and beyond what they could achieve themselves.
