Mont Albert Home
The brief was to increase the overall functionality and flow of the home for this busy family of five and bring in a contemporary style that remained sympathetic to the classic clinker brick facade. A main focus for the client was to provide a central kitchen ‘hub’ where people could easily come together. The previous ‘U-shaped’ kitchen was small and impractical, boxed in from the rest of the house. They also wanted to highlight the outlook to the beautiful garden.
We reconfigured the floor plan and removed walls to open up the kitchen. We converted an unused section of the adjacent formal lounge into a Butler’s Pantry, increasing the storage and usable kitchen space. A large island bench incorporated in the new design was key to providing this central zone. The client loved a grey palette but didn’t want the spaces to feel cold. To avoid this, we specified lots of texture and introduced a warm timber for the flooring and feature shelving. In the Living Area the glass wall was removed and pushed out to gain additional living space. A gas fireplace provides a focal point and the TV now has a designated zone.
