Lindfield is a suburb on the Upper North Shore of Sydney in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is 13 kilometres northwest of the Sydney Central Business District and is in the local government area of Ku-ring-gai Council.
The name “Lindfield” means a clearing in the lime forest and derives from the name given by an early landowner, Francis List, to a cottage he built in the area in 1884. List likely named his cottage after Lindfield, Sussex, England. When a railway line came through the area in 1890s, the name of the property was used to identify the station and neighbourhood.
Lime trees are a family of about 30 species of trees or bushes (genus Tilia). Tilia trees produce soft and easily worked timber, which has very little grain and density. Tilia trees symbolizes; Love, Protection, Luck.
The colour palette is light in colour with soft greys for the light scheme and soft green for the dark scheme. The design is targeted to a young demographic of families looking to buy a boutique home in the prized school catchment. The design is luxury focused yet minimal that would appeal to a young family but also references the Tilia or Lime trees of Lindfield.
The change of light throughout the Australian seasons was a strong influencer to our design. The interior design maximises the natural light through open space planning and clever design details allowing the changing light to be showcased.
