Troye Sivan's House In Melbourne

       ““I was living in the States for about five years, longing to be in Australia, before the pandemic brought me home. As much as I’ve missed touring and seeing people, it’s been cool to be forced to stay still for a second. I wake up every day excited to make something new, in a house that tells the story of my life and the places I’ve loved,” Sivan concludes. And for any old-guard aesthetes concerned about young celebrities becoming standard-bearers for good design and idiosyncratic taste, Sivan’s seductive Melbourne sanctuary should put their minds at ease—the kids are alright.
       Troye Sivan, an Australian singer-songwriter beloved by thousands of teenage girls, teamed up with designer David Flack of Flack Studio to design his Melbourne home. Dacid Flack has turned Troye Sivan's vision of a sunny, emotional home into reality. A historic residential project, the former brick factory and handball court was converted into a home by architect John Mockridge in 1970, but the building dates back to 1869 and retains the spirit of its Victorian origins. Today, it is an eclectically decorated temple and home to Troye's artistic imagination.
       Troye Sivan has been active in the entertainment industry in North America for five or six years, and now he has returned to Melbourne to create his soulful home. Into the living area, you will find here is like a paradise of art, fashion and collection of the bazaar, the original home can also be like the bazaar full of beautiful things, each big and small things, are worthy of careful appreciation.
       Troye Sivan’s aesthetic predilections were honed during his travels across the globe, in particular his pre-pandemic years in Los Angeles, where he still maintains a home. “There’s a strong affinity between Melbourne and L.A. in terms of climate and architecture. That strain of classic California midcentury modernism has been a big influence,” he explains. “I also love the time I’ve spent in Japan. The idea of wabi-sabi, the perfectly imperfect, really resonates with me.”
       Embracing imperfection as a means of safeguarding the soul of a home is a concept perhaps too abstruse for many homeowners and designers, but Sivan and Flack clearly get it. “We left the original cork ceilings as they were, stains and all. If we wanted to preserve the germ of what this house was originally, everything had to feel effortless and real,” Flack avers. “It’s like the yellowing Scarpa lamps over the dining table. They look like they were sitting in a house in Milan for 30 years with a bunch of Italians smoking under them,” he says, further touting the power of patina.
       “Troye is an incredibly savvy collaborator. In our earliest conversations, he talked about materiality, how he wanted to feel in his house, about the scent and the sound and the light. It was so much more than just a few pretty things he found on Pinterest,” recalls designer David Flack of local firm Flack Studio, Sivan’s partner in the sensitive, sophisticated reimagining of the singer’s Victorian-era home.
