The Jewellery Box Cottage Renovation
From top to toe, inside & out, this classic 1930s home was redesigned & transformed back to it's former glory.
Affectionately known as the ‘Jewellery Box Cottage’, this heritage renovation was a mammoth task for both spacial planning and design.
The task at hand was to convert the home back from two run down flats into one home and revive the original character of the 1930s era home. Space was limited so much consideration and clever designing was required to produce a balanced 4 bedroom home for modern living. The original kitchen fireplace was saved and incorporated into the design, which is now one of the stand out features in the home.
Every detail was attended to, including the use of detailed mouldings to create wall features, cross heads above the doors and beautiful feature skirting boards. Intrim SK187 in 185mm was used as skirting board, Intrim SK197 in 90mm as architrave, a custom picture rail in the same profile as the skirting, Intrim SN01 sill nosing, Intrim CM16 cornice mould was used to top the cross head and Intrim DAR square finished profile was used to create the boards on the wall panelling.
The home was a 2018 HIA Award Finalist for – Renovation award in the Heritage $350,000 – $500,000 category.
