The clients didn’t require more space in this large and traditional Melbourne house, just better amenities. The home was put together to perfectly suit the young, stylish owners by combining modern, quirky touches with classic nostalgic forms.
Making the kitchen the centre of the home was the key focus for this space. The kitchen and dining area needed to have generous space for large family gatherings and ample storage for the crockery and cutlery the owners had collected over time. For Hecker Guthrie, the kitchen became about respecting the architecture, but also highlighting the contemporary style of the owners. The appliances for this renovation project were supplied by Fisher Paykel Australia.
