The kitchen, living and dining areas of this historic 100 year old country home have been uniquely redesigned with the perfect balance of the latest technology with timeless, rustic industrial charm.
This challenging project represented opportunities to improve the functional use and comfort of the space whilst paying tribute to the history of the property which is now home to the fourth generation of the original family owners.
The new open plan footprint is an ergonomic arrangement of space to include cosy and inviting living and dining zones, a high-tech kitchen, butler’s pantry and hidden laundry.
The re-orientation of the living area allows for the commissioned artwork, which represents this dairy farm, to take centre stage.
The design includes innovative use of locally sourced recycled hardwood, almost-black cabinetry and black metal shelving to create the desired contemporary industrial look and feel. The hand-blown glass pendant lights and textured white splash-backs add brightness and contrast and the new engineered hardwood timber flooring which anchors the space and provides continuity throughout all areas.
End-to-end bifold doors have replaced the rear wall to expose the expansive views of the property and to celebrate the natural environment of the surrounds.
The outcome is a well considered design that creates a permanent homestead to be enjoyed and celebrated by family, guests and future generations into the next century and beyond.
