This circa 1930 home is the home of an accomplished cookery book author.

She wanted to open-up the rear of the home and create a new test kitchen for recipes, and the primary requirement was for there to be as much natural light as possible.

This was a challenge for the award-winning Designer, George Conomos as the rooms are on the south side of the house.

As shown in the images, the final design accomplished this beautifully.

The kitchen joinery was crafted to provide a “country” look and the hand-paint finish gave strength to this feel.

Terrazzo benchtops gave durable surfaces for working off – important for pastry and pizza base preparation.

The timber joinery was bespoke to match the original work, as were the skirtings, architraves and mouldings as the home was in original condition when purchased.

The other works incorporated were a bathroom in contemporary finishes and a laundry off the kitchen.

An outdoor entertaining area was added when the interior works were complete.

The Owners were very happy with the delivered project.

The skill of the Designer, the agreement of the Owners to budget for quality finishes and the skills of accomplished Tradespeople combined provided a light-filled and relaxing nucleus for the home.

We won an award in the Master Builders Association “Excellence in Housing”  awards that year.
