The Taylor Residence project is the renovation of a 1920’s Queenslander home, which has been in the family for generations.
The brief for the project was to design a home for a family of five and to consider a masculine palette that was in keeping with the traditional house.
Ample storage and workspaces were created with the implementation of a concealed door to the laundry to provide a refined and seamless design in the kitchen. Quality appliances, lighting, flooring, fixture and fittings were imperative to the design.
Use of Corian benchtops in the kitchen and laundry for easy care and concrete basins to the bathrooms to keep to the masculine palette. Loads of natural light floods the home making the dark cabinetry a welcoming addition.
Certain elements have been retained throughout the project to keep its former glory, fluted glass doors, VJ walls, breezeways to name some features.
The exterior of old and new blending seamlessly with bold black accents, natural stone, outdoor shower and the reuse of the original laundry tub in the pool house all creating a blend of old world/contemporary charm.
