We did a significant amount of work to the front of house, rebuilding the stairs, redoing the handrails and the balustrade, and put in a new driveway. The landscaping was executed sensationally by Martin Askin. The desert design utilised cactus’ to really complement the monochrome aesthetic.
For the front door, we installed glass panels to let more light in, and teamed this with keyless entry for simple convenience.
The front deck as we aimed to create a relaxed feel, a place to watch the world go by. We changed its entire structure to allow the living and kitchen to spill out into this indoor-outdoor space. We wanted to continue creating flow between the interior and exterior spaces, so we opted for gas strut pop out windows, allowing the kitchen bench to be utilised from both the inside kitchen area and deck.
The windows made a huge difference to both the amount of natural light in home, and the usability of the space by doubling the seating area at the kitchen bench.
We sanded and treated all the flooring and deck for this house which resulted in a fresh look, and that contrasted well with the white walls.
The Winterfell house was truly a remarkable project and a timeless design.
