Mount Martha-Home Makeover
This Home Makeover, from 80's nostalgia to modern coastal chic, is a testament to meticulous planning and collaboration. The original structure, dating back to the early '80s, witnessed a complete transformation, with only the external brick walls and roof retaining their original identity.
The clients, a dynamic professional couple in their early 40s, sought a reliable builder capable of meeting tight deadlines for their weekender escape. The challenge was to achieve a complete upgrade and modernise the dwelling, keeping in mind the desire for a chic beach house aesthetic.
The renovator's focal point was the open-plan family/living/dining area, strategically designed to embrace breathtaking bay views. Marinda, the visionary client, infused the project with her eye for detail, opting for subtle tones and a modern vibe throughout. Special considerations were made to preserve the existing roof and external walls, a decision rooted in both budget consciousness and achieving an open-plan living concept.
Memorable moments unfolded during the process, marked by the delightful partnership with Marinda and Johan. Their professionalism, clear communication, and Marinda's organisational prowess ensured a smooth collaboration. Facetime design banter became a highlight, particularly in finalising locations and colours, adding a touch of fun to the journey.
In the end, the outcome is not just a renovated space; it's a modern coastal retreat where every element reflects the essence of the clients' vision and the breathtaking surroundings. From design banter to breathtaking bay views, this project encapsulates the beauty of collaboration, innovation, and the joy found in the transformation of a house into a dream home.
