A quirky yet classic brief enabled By Bruno to inject some bold design moves into an untouched 1960s austerity home. In preparation for the proposed design, meticulous footing reconstruction and engineering work was completed throughout the house, tying in with the design. Areas were then finished off with extensive sourcing and attention to detail.
Original Tasmanian Oak floors were polished and lime coated to brighten up the once dungeon like dark areas throughout the house, including the now inviting bathroom. The steel framed windows were stripped, brass fittings fully restored and frames painted in a matt black which have now become a feature of the home, contrasting beautifully against the bright white walls and flooring.
The kitchen fit out consisted of textured vinyl wrap joinery with profile doors and antique brass handles to tie in with the original steel framed windows. Honed Carrara marble was used for the island and back benches. Quality Blum internals were fitted throughout all cabinetry.
To free up one entire room in the house, the laundry was repositioned and concealed to run down the length of the hallway, behind a curtain rather than bi-fold doors for best access, adding texture and a softness to the space. A compact internal clothes line and shelf along with bespoke Tasmanian Oak cabinetry was installed ensuring optimum design and functionality within the compact space.
Subway tiles were arranged vertically with contrasting charcoal grout from floor to ceiling in the bathroom, which is a continuing theme throughout the wet areas. This not only ties in the spaces but also makes a confident statement.
