The handcrafted quality of this home was outstanding, particularly the staircase, which was accurately delivered to the millimetre. Each timber stair tread required onsite templating to be manufactured offsite. Fine details such as this, and the brick corbelling, parapets, wainscoting , cornices and skirting boards, showcase the consistent master craftsmanship that is visible throughout the project.
Remarkable attention to detail was required to fulfill the lofty brief and deliver this highly customised build to an excellent standard. Wrought iron balustrades were designed and manufactured, then painted in a finish to match the aluminium window frames. The windows and doors are double glazed aluminium to provide thermal comfort. Chandeliers, pendants and wall lights were designed and sourced internationally through the client’s European connections.
The varying widths of thresholds and ranged ceiling heights allowed rooms to connect seamlessly while the direction of the flooring was carefully laid to create soft distinctions between rooms.
Adaptable design for the benefit of the client was prized throughout this project. The team capitalised on voids discovered during modelling by transforming the upper-level spaces into storage drawers and a laundry chute to the floor below.
