I always find it bitter sweet watching the demolishing of our clients old homes. So sad to see something that holds a lifetime of stories bowled over in the blink of an eye but at the same time so exciting to start a newer, more fabulous chapter.
For that reason this home really warms the heart with the subtle features throughout that represent what stood before it. A quirky and loveable trait architects Klopper & Davis seem fond of in their designs and an honour to build.
Would you have guessed this entry way was made from the window sashes in the old home? Making this feature didn't come easy, the windows were initially white and much love and care went in to make it look as fabulous it does.
Shortly after entering the house you are greeted with large jarrah windows from ceiling to floor to ensure this house flows and ties in perfectly with its unique entry way.
Timber cladding using the jarrah floorboards from the previous old home features throughout the exterior and interior of the home. Cleverly integrated with the recycled brick and burnished concrete floors you would never know it holds a lifetime of secrets.
Nothing could have topped of this design better than a sophisticated black granite kitchen bench top and some statement copper pendant lights.
This Nedlands project was a joy to work on in every way from the exciting design concept to the delightful clients a massive thanks to Klopper & Davis architects for the opportunity. Can't wait to show you our next one.
