Sunny Disposition

This internal refurbishment of a 1940’s dwelling was approached with respect. It was important to Matt and Margaret to maintain the character of the home while incorporating modern comforts with a mid-century twist.

The new design utilizes the west facing aspects of the dwelling allowing sunlight to stream into the open plan living spaces.

The warm timbers throughout the home create an earthy feel that reflects Matt and Margaret's' green-thumb lifestyle.

The existing Rimu flooring was repaired with care and consideration to the heritage of the home. Rimu studs salvaged from the wall framing were crafted into custom bench tops to create another chapter in the unique story of this home.

HPL Laminate was used throughout to create clever storage solutions.

The stability and composition of this product allowed us to craft routed handles in the kitchen and intentionally expose the core product to allow the same timber warmth to show amongst the white cabinetry.

The kitchen is without a doubt the heart of this home.

Its location relative the the backyard and lounge make it the natural common ground for this family.

The galley style with large butlers sink and vast bench space is well suited to Margaret's' passion for cooking and baking.

Matt took this opportunity to bring his love of all things beer to life.

The integrated fridge and beer tap means Matt can brew and enjoy the fruits of his labor from within the comforts of his home.

A decision Matts’ friends are also pleased with.
