Revitalise a 1890s masterpiece

Instantly captivating, this c1890s Victorian residence presents a remarkable façade, however, after decades and a variety of renovations the conflicting interiors needed an intelligent redesign to re-establish harmony and deliver contemporary comfort.

Enviably positioned in the exclusive Urquhart Estate, our clients were originally drawn to the residence due to the range of exceptional lifestyle amenities only moments away. Surrounded by dynamic dining precincts, lush parks and prestigious schools, it was essential to them that the home was updated to perfectly meet the requirements of a modern family.

Prioritise harmony and quality

Care was taken to create a cohesive aesthetic throughout the residence. We developed contemporary interiors to match the grand period façade in quality and craftmanship. Simplifying the colour palette to an effortlessly chic monochrome helped create a sense of harmony throughout. Taking classic design cues, we installed timber floors and elegant marble fireplaces but focused on creating clean lines and modern open spaces.

The reformatted and expanded open plan living area is now an ideal entertaining space. Featuring an epicurean kitchen, our clients can enjoy the stunning marble breakfast bar, ease of two ovens and extensive soft close cabinetry. Framed by floor to ceiling windows, the space appears seamlessly connected to the lush gardens, establishing a calming sense
of serenity.

Luxurious and striking, we created bathrooms in sleek black marble paired with white marble double vanities. The family bathroom features a freestanding bath while the main bedroom ensuite features a lavish rain shower and verdant garden outlooks.

The ultimate family domain

This residence not only presents beautifully but it also functions seamlessly, allowing our clients the ideal environment to host events or relax as a family, while the simple colour palette heroes the premium materials and interesting textures of the design

“We hired Kube to renovate and extend our house. They managed to seamlessly blend together the old and new sections of our house. Andrew and Marcus made the process less daunting and were always available to answer questions. We love our new home and would highly recommend their services.“
