Having completed successful renovation of a client’s Brighton home, Mr Mitchell were subsequently invited to redesign their newly acquired Palm Springs modernist-inspired holiday home in Portsea.
The project took on a complete overhaul of the large open living space that combined kitchen, dining and living, where an existing striking stone fireplace, took centre stage and helped define each area.
The clients soon realized the potential and extend to which their new holiday home could be completely transformed, so what commenced as a straight-forward decorative job, resulted in a new kitchen design and casual dining space that stretched virtually the entire length of the homes main space, nine metres of spotted gum.
To soften the existing polished concrete floors and stone walls of the living space, an eclectic mix of reclaimed timbers, natural woven fibres and organic shapes were added.
The bathrooms followed suit in style and feeling, with reclaimed woods, large grey porcelain tiles and featured pendant knot lights, cascading shadow and provide a dramatic touch to the bathroom feel.
Drainage is often the forgotten workhorse of the building and design function. Yet drainage maintains a simple albeit vital purpose.
