    The high ceilings and timber construction gently creaked as you walk the hallway of the existing home. However, there was an obvious change in quality from the light and airy original home to the later cluttered renovations to the rear.

    Our role in transforming this family home was to reimagine the family areas and celebrate the connection between the house and the rear yard. Internally, we wanted to bring back a sense of calm, order and hierarchy within the home. We needed to create spaces that were delineated for their function to allow for practicalities of a busy family, while allowing for a spacious, well-appointed home.

    The home owners loved to cook and entertain but the existing layout meant you couldn’t do both at the same time. So we re-established the kitchen as the heart of the home. Locating the cooktop on the island created the opportunity to connect with guests, prepare meals and socialise.

    The team is very hard working and delivered a premium product. It’s even better than we ever imagined. N.N.

    The new Living areas introduced a feature fireplace, black steel doors that stop the warm air escaping and a circular skylight to bring in much needed natural light. The back wall to the rear garden was replaced with a set of new sliding glass doors and the garden completely re-landscaped with the help of Landscape Architects Inge Jabara Landscapes.

    Combining a few standout textured materials with base neutrals throughout the interiors ensured a warm, soft palette. It was important to the owners that we accommodate their active lifestyle and so resilient surfaces and materials we’re considered at every step to ensure comfort was not compromised. A terrazzo tile floor was integrated throughout the living areas, grounding the palette while adding thermal mass and insulation. To soften the noise and create warmth in the quieter areas such as bedrooms, we used a blonde timber engineered board in a herringbone pattern throughout.

    We wanted to use a consistent textured timber aesthetic and integrate Blackbutt veneer joinery to match the owners bespoke master bed that they loved. Fixtures were either brass or black finished that matched detailing in the steel doors and lighting, helping to maintain a consistent palette.

    What made this project so successful was a good relationship between the architectural team and the client that was design-focussed and based on trust in the brief and design. 

    “What was once a dysfunctional mishmash of poky rooms is now a light, airy and eminently liveable domain”
