A hidden gem, this gorgeous home situated in prestigious Saint Heliers, Auckland was created by Sydney based interior designers Andrew Loader Design and completed in 2017. It was the third project our client had hired us to collaborate with them on.
Positioned on the slopes of the beautiful seaside enclave of St Heliers with views to iconic Rangitoto Island and incorporating large expanses of ceiling to floor glass with a double heighted entry foyer, this expansive 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home was designed for maximum transference of light, creating an expansive and spacious feel throughout.
The project scope included the complete renovation of the entrance foyer, formal living room, family / dining room and kitchen with utility room on the ground floor in addition to a mezzanine lounge, three bedrooms, study and two bathrooms on the first floor.
A seamless indoor / outdoor flow was a major consideration in the redesign of the home so that the owners could maximise their living space during the Auckland summers. It was essential that the key elements of our interior design were carried through to the exterior and this was successfully achieved by creating outside living and dining ‘rooms’ as extensions to those inside the home.
We chose a luminous all white colour scheme which was complimented by textured feature materials, custom joinery, furnishings, accessories and colourful abstract artworks. An Italian tile in a dark charcoal shade was selected for it’s resemblance to the lines of fine sheer curtains when drawn and this was used to clad a full wall in the formal living room that incorporates a raised fireplace and full width fire hearth.
The kitchen is fully integrated and features a polar white stone splash back and feature marble effect island. The custom joinery in the dining area incorporates a motif in the Hollywood Regency style which we had previously designed for our client in their Sydney home and this element was further repeated in a number of the furnishings selected for the family / dining room, mezzanine lounge and master and guest bedrooms.
This beautiful home represents refined luxury at every turn and was again a wonderful collaboration with our client to develop an absolutely outstanding project.
