This house had an interesting blend of original Californian Bungalow with a still quite edgy 20 year old architectural extension. (Perfectly suited to our quirky clients who were very interested in contemporary form & function). We didn’t want to offend the original house either so we combined subtle Australian veneers with a more conservative flat alabaster door. We believe this combination created a timeless blend whilst honouring our clients quirkiness & the existing architectural features that were staying, (Plywood flooring & squareset detailing). The added surprises included a red powder coated support post & a double-glazed tempered glass splashback behind the cooktop so they could blissfully watch their chooks run past as they cooked. With minor structural work, we transitioned a relatively dark U-shaped kitchen, oversized laundry & very compact dining room into a light-filled, user-friendly space.
