The inside of this character house in Wellington was selectively renovated by Seear-Budd Ross Hamer to deliver an anchor for occupied household lifestyle. With a aim on the kitchen area and eating places, adjacent scullery and laundry zones, the redesign brings collectively a restrained approach and an expression of craft and character that speaks to the first functions of the property.

Within the smooth white open-plan area of the kitchen and dining area, two reliable stone masses are established in a straightforward arrangement — a person soaring from the ground and the other hovering from the ceiling. Anchoring the place, the long linear traces of the monolithic stone bench attract the dining and kitchen area zones jointly even though at the exact time environment a various tone for every. Counterbalancing the bench, the hovering stone-clad extract transforms a normally utilitarian section of the kitchen into a sculptural object, set in entrance of a new window via which early morning light-weight illuminates the area. Both of those bench and extract are clad in tender-toned Como Charcoal limestone.

When in the kitchen, warm walnut cabinetry is revealed. Crafted from walnut veneer set into stable walnut frames and finished with sculpted walnut handles, the cabinetry provides levels of craft, tonal depth and the timelessness of pure wood into the spouse and children space. Appliances are integrated to manage the purity and softness of the visible palette. Tucked driving the kitchen area, the simple white-clad scullery place recesses into the partitions, turning into virtually invisible. Made to be a history, the scullery doorways are only articulated by delicate white detailing to match the kind of the sculptural walnut fronts opposites.

With one-way links and thresholds being essential aspects all over the challenge, Seear-Budd Ross Hamer additional new doorways with solid bronze handles amongst arrival and living zones. 

Balancing practical modern day dwelling with craft, tradition and splendor, the new kitchen area, eating and adjacent spaces offer a place for the family members to occur with each other. This undertaking is evidence of the value of thought of and precise interventions in present homes, which can both equally rework the existing and discuss to the previous.
