Creating versatile spaces
Designer Mark Nickson had to make sure a range of functional spaces – a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and entertaining room – were successfully incorporated into quite a small area.
After achieving a plan that would allow this, Nickson & Burke also had to ensure the bed would be hidden from view when the bed was not in use, as it is situated next to a large window.
The kitchen is a major attribute of the fit-out. Its cabinets were specifically selected to blend with and complement the room, which opens up into the living area. The kitchen has been designed to be hardwearing and long lasting.
The kitchen has been created to provide ease of use, aesthetic appeal and practicality for the clients. Cabinet doors were painted with a gloss two-pack paint – Antique White USA and Tesrol Dark Beige – with a contrasting Laminex-finished designer veneer in Sublime Walnut.
Aluminum frames with opaque glass panels complete the look. Stainless steel lip pulls, a glass splashback and benchtop in Quarella ‘Crema Clara’ feature in the kitchen.
Ceramic tiles were used on the floor, LED lights have been incorporated into the cabinets and a Miele oven, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher and a Liebherr refrigerator were also installed .
The Pool House was fitted with solar heating and benefits from an abundance of daylight filling the various spaces.
