Bespoke Bookcase

December 18, 2018

 

The client brief was a image off Collette Dinnigan sitting in front of a Mirror display unit.

The Client said Matthew “I want something like this , but without the mirrors and to fit into this space, and I want to keep the antique table as it is a special piece to me”.

So I designed this bookcase that fits between two brick walls, made from a mix of solid French walnut and veneer.

There as two small doors at each side as well as a mix of adjustable shelves and fixed shelves, the door knobs are also made by hand from French walnut.

Our client is over the moon happy with their new display bookcase, and it looks like it has always been there.

 

Home Office Storage, Filing, Display unit

October 5, 2018

We built this home office from an empty space in the apartment of the Abian Apartments in the city. We made the zen style sliding doors from French Walnut and used fabric inserts to allow air flow. The sliding doors allow a divide between the office space and home space. The owner was very specific about needing filing cabinets and cupboard storage. We used French Walnut and created fun nooks in the centre for display objects.

We worked with Wrightson Stewart Interiors to design the space.

The owner is very happy with how the office space was created and we will be making a desk to complete the space.

Built In TV unit with LED lit Shelves

October 5, 2018

We were contacted by Wrightson Stewart Interiors to create specialised joinery pieces for an apartment in the new Abian Apartment building in the city.  This custom built TV unit has a sliding door in the centre that balances the design of the shelves and the TV. The whole unit was finished with a two pack polyurethane finish for lasting durability.

The client is extremely happy with the level of detail and the final outcome of this design, build and installation.

Built In Fireplace for Apartment Living

October 5, 2018

We installed this stunning fireplace. The fireplace is controlled by remote and has built in speakers for sound. It is run by electricity and water and we had to install all of this and needed to remove a wall.

To give the top section a floating look and feel we needed to build a inner support from steal and suspend this from the ceiling,  the steal gives strength to the top section. The apartment is very high up and strong winds can be known to blow in and this added to the brief to make this unit extra sturdy, as it is close to the balcony doors.

We covered the interior columns with 24 carat gold leaf which add a warmth and glow to the living area. When the morning light comes through onto the columns a beautiful golden glow fills the whole living area.

The owner is extremely happy with the level of detail and installation.

We worked with the interior designers Wrightson Stewart Interiors on this project.

 

 

Dressing Room in the Sky

October 5, 2018

We were asked to turn one of the bedroom spaces in the Abian Apartments into a walk-in dressing room. There needed to be a sensational space to display handbags and shoes and it needed to be protected by glass. We decided to add LED lighting to highlight the viewing. We used American Cherry Solid timber and veneer to create all the shelving, doors, sliding draws, jewelry pocket draws, hanging spaces and mirrored sliding doors. We also covered the interior column with 24 carat gold leaf which really adds a glamorous feel to the whole room.

The owner is over the moon with their new dressing space and highly complimented our level of detail.
