Red brick residence, Oatley
From dated to dashing, we transformed this 70s home to suit the growing needs of a young family of five. Both storeys were reconfigured to harness the light, enhance the space and create easy flow.
Starting with a wider entry, we adopted a light, fresh palette overlaid with splashes of black. Oak floors contrast with noir window frames, tapware, door hardware, balustrades and kitchen appliances.
Merging the kitchen with the dining and living zones and installing bi-fold doors, we made the water views a highlight. Adding a square island encourages family conversation and allows all four people to enjoy the view.
In the wet areas, an intriguing tile pattern, lighting
and a pale colour palette reference a Nordic aesthetic.
"Maria came recommended to us through a number of people and we connected immediately. She is an excellent listener and in equal measure, interpreter of briefs! Her positivity was highly valued through this renovation process. We’re very pleased with the outcome. I would love to work with Maria again and highly recommend her!"
