This house is a Heritage-listed home, so our design work was detailed.
Our Gardner Design Team worked on everything from compliance for heritage, drafting and design, through to the interior inspiration.
The challenge with designing for a property like this is completing an upgrade without destroying the home’s character and charm as well as staying within the Heritage guidelines.
We assisted our clients to make design choices that enhance the status of the property whilst enabling them to increase the size of the renovation and make the space more useful bright.
Working on the facade we ensured that we did not alter the home’s heritage features, but rather complement them with restored fretwork and the feature of new charcoal granite pavers in the driveway.
Internally we made use of the non-functional mouldy, dirt filled out-building and designed it into a new open planned kitchen, dining and second living area.
The kitchen involved custom joinery designed by Gardner Design, which included a 3.8 metre long island bench with a capo brown granite honed top, the joinery under Island bench top is a Smoked Tasmanian Oak veneer which complements the antique white USA satin finish on opposing kitchen joinery.
The design of four bi-fold doors helped to make the connection of indoors to the outdoors. The addition of a beautiful pool surrounded by limestone pavers, makes this space useful and inviting.
All three of the bathrooms were designed not only to make best use of the space, but we were also able to work together with the client to make some standout design choices in the fixtures and finishes. With a stone shower niche, custom marble sinks and terrazzo floor tiling these bathrooms radiate a luxurious feel.
