“Reliability, quality, communication. I was relieved and grateful that I was looked after so well during the whole process from start to completion, and even post completion.”
Peter Runting, Owner

The objective of ‘Chatsworth’ was to preserve the original charm of the period home while seamlessly merging it with a contemporary Australian two-story extension. Across two floors, it boasts three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a powder room, euro laundry, kitchen, living areas, and an under-stair storage wine cellar. Working with Lukas Partners we strategically employed architectural angles to optimise internal ceiling heights and natural lighting while meeting strict planning regulations on a narrow block. Our skilled craftsman meticulously restored the exterior using warm spotted-gum timber, ice white bricks, and charcoal monument steel cladding. Internally, we met the brief of creating a tranquil retreat inspired by spa-like hotels with the use of oak, earthy greens, terracotta tones and accents of brass and copper. 

The result is a highly functional home that maximises natural light, provides green views, and incorporates skylights where necessary. Although presently conceived as a luxurious bachelor pad, the space’s adaptability ensures effortless transformation into a beautiful family home in the future.
