Situated on a double block in the Brisbane northern suburb of Ascot, this prestigious property was transformed into a modern interpretation of Hampton’s sophistication. A subtle mix of cutting edge modern and traditional design features with a hint of industrial rigidity.
Gabriel Custom Kitchens Brisbane was commissioned to undertake a complete joinery fit out for the extensive Ascot renovation. Working closely with the interior designer, client and builder all aspects of the bespoke joinery was carefully planned by Gabriel Custom Kitchens to ensure a seamless installation.
A rich colour pallet and a variety of materials were used throughout the home, producing rich inviting spaces of the highest quality. Shaker doors in hand painted enamel, Custom stained American Oak panelled island and a combination of engineered stone, natural Calacutta Italian marble throughout.
Hynes mansion in Ascot Brisbane “Valhalla” built in 1908 is a prime example of a majestic Queenslander. The last renovations were done in the 90’s and were becoming a bit dated so it was time to remake Valhalla the opulent home she was built to be.
A series of projects began and first up was the upstairs kitchen, bar, mud room and butler’s pantry. All joinery was finished in gloss 2 pack polyurethane and kitchen benchtops made from Calacutta honed marble with 80mm mitred edges. Special features include curved panelling to range hood cabinet and wallpaper inserts in pantry shelving.
To finish the house a downstairs bar was installed along with renovated bathroom. These areas feature 80mm mitred Pietra Grey marble and handmade subway tiles.
Brady, Wavell Heights
This new build in Wavell Heights Brisbane encompasses clean contemporary kitchen design coupled with modern finishes to create an elegant family home.
Being a young family looking for hard wearing durable finishes and aesthetically pleasing looks the Brady’s decided on Wilsonart woodgrain melamine doors, Caesar Stone engineered stone benchtops and Blum Antaro soft close drawers.
From the initial kitchen design consultation it was clear the Daroca’s were looking for the old world charm of French provincial styling for their Bardon renovation. Their Bardon cottage was raised with a complete ground floor added and walls removed on the first floor to create a generous space for this stunning French provincial kitchen.
This French provincial kitchen features custom Hand finishet antique wash paint work, custom turned European Beech handles on wicker baskets, specially crafted range hood cabinet, extra thick fluted end panels and 30mm Ocean Green granite kitchen benchtops with lambs tongue edge work.
The first stage was a two bedroom extension, built for twin sons about to start university. The area was designed to be self-sufficient and separated from the main dwelling. Although the construction m
aintained original Queenslander features to keep in line with the existing property the interior was contemporary with neutral colours.
The second stage involved renovating the kitchen and laundry / powder room. These areas compliment the home with hand painted shaker doors and ice locker chrome handles. These elements along with stainless steel bench tops give a modern traditional kitchen with industrial elements. Display case in the island was designed to give the kitchen a personalized touch so the owner could display some personal objects. The laundry / powder room was designed to have the lavish features of a powder room but to also be a functional laundry that can be concealed when needed. The powder room kept a more traditional feel with Statuairo honed marble bench tops and claw feet bath tub.
The original retro kitchen of the Hawkins Mansfield home was in a separate room disconnected from the dining and living room, so it was decided early on in the kitchen design process that the original kitchen area should have the walls removed to open up the space and the new kitchen to be open plan with an island bench accessible from all sides.
Contemporary high gloss 2 pack polyurethane finished doors were selected with a bold feature colour in the glass splashback giving a hint of the original retro kitchen. Giblee natural granite benchtops
gave the kitchen extra warmth and texture.
