Shawco Building Project 1
Shawco Building executed this extensive renovation alongside Design Equilibrium on a 60-year-old weatherboard home in Melbourne’s leafy Eastern Suburbs. The result is a modern twist on the Hamptons style, filled with soft timbers and lots of sunlight.
Serving as the hub of this family home, the kitchen features an open-plan design, coupled with a dining area that opens up to the backyard. The striking Carrara marble benchtops and matching splashback gives the classic shaker style cabinetry a contemporary lift. A clever floorplan provides ample seating space around the stately island bench and dining table, perfect for the whole family. Increasing storage potential and creating an additional food preparation zone, the functional butler’s pantry is great for concealing appliances, keeping the kitchen neat and simple.
This cosy dwelling showcases a comfortable living area with a built-in TV and gas fireplace centred between two kiln dried hardwood windows to keep the room light and warm. Benches were installed either side, allowing the homeowners to display personal affects and décor, and providing extra home storage.
Shawco Building upgraded the house to James Hardie Linea weatherboards, maintaining the original appearance of the cladding whilst giving the home that Hamptons charm. This soothing white exterior gently contrasts with the COLORBOND ‘Basalt’ roofing and guttering. Exhibiting kerb appeal, lush green grass and a rustic red-brick pathway elevate the overall look.
