This 70s red brick house is built on the escarpment of Garigal National Park in St Ives . It has a breathtaking vista of coastal bush echoing the orchestra of bird calls and wildlife noisesHowever the existing interior did not relate to the extravagant views. It was somewhat dark with a closed in feel .The kitchen , living roomand bathrooms lacked contemporary functionality
My brief was to update the Kitchen ,living area and two bathrooms to suit a multigenerational family
The client wanted simplicity with a neutral colour palette that would have a timeless appeal whilst enhancing the families’ lifestyle
We chose classic finishes utilising Carrara marble in the fireplace hearth and Calcutta porcelain for the kitchen benchtops
Joinery has simple moulding detail. The island bench features curved ends to maximise functionality
We installed, new semi-transparent roller blinds throughout in a neutral palette
The walls were refreshed with a Porters Paint Rubble.
The existing tile floor was dated & had been retiled over several times making it very heavy for the structure of the house
The floor had to be engineered specified and needed additional supported posts installed underneath the house
The new washed back oak floor reflects the soft pallet of the exterior bush whilst maximising lifestyle .
The aesthetic and design brings new life to this home in a timeless location
