The brief was to transform the existing residence giving the architecture a modern lift, whilst reflecting a cohesive blend of the clients styles. Curating a refined look and feel, through the desire for clean lines, and layering it with an array of textures & patterns, the home evolved into a distinctive and vibrant oasis. Langlois Design also took into consideration the functionality of the space how this would adapt to the different life stages of the young family.
The execution of this renovation centred around the kitchen, honouring the heart and centre of the home. Opening up this space to create a clear line of sight through the home, was vital to allow for harmonious flow and a shift in liveability. The unconventional configuration of the kitchen also required fresh take, prompting the design of a round, tiered island bench. This introduced a needed divide, keeping cooking, prepping, and entertaining separate, whilst making the whole space feel social and inclusive.
Emphasis was placed on expressing the clients two personalities through the many finishes within the kitchen, executed through a medley of patterns and a considered application of colour. Opting for quirky, organic shapes and forms, paired with grounding materiality, this space features olive green and teak joinery, a timeless terrazzo island bench, mosaic tiles, and streamline, modern tapware.
Welcoming, yet juxtaposing, this project pulled on a mixture of styles, cultures, and tones, forming an energised and homey feel.
