This Month At Home Visits Lindfield

1907 a0

On Sunday 21 July, 'At Home' invites you to explore Quilters House, a residence designed by Bijl Architecture.

The Quilters House, nestled in Sydney's north shore suburb of Lindfield, is a renewed heritage home with a sympathetic yet artful architectural intervention.

From the very first meeting with their clients, Bijl saw that detail, craft and quilting were an important part of their everyday lives. This insight formed the foundations for the project brief and design approach - to expand and re-establish the home with painstaking care through the lens of quilting’s visual language – pattern, form, grid, line, and layers.

By blending traditional and contemporary patterns, proportions, materials and textures, the Quilters House refreshes a heritage home to the street, and absolutely transforms it to the rear through thoughtful intermeshing and layering of old with new.

You won't want to miss out on early bird tickets - so book before Monday 14 July.


Bijl Architecture was established in 2012 by architect Melonie Bayl-Smith and is already the recipient of numerous architecture and construction industry awards.

The practice has worked on a variety of projects including work across residential, interiors, commercial and public sectors, with a focus on a collaborative approach to each project working closely with clients, consultants and builders.

The practice’s design philosophy identifies that inherent flexibility and intentional longevity are key to creating sustainable architecture, from the viewpoints of aesthetics, functionality, economy and the total environment.
