Our brief was to transform the unrenovated property to maximise its value. We achieved this by creating a design that would unlock the property’s potential, managing construction to the client’s deadline and providing interior styling so the property was looking its best for sale.
The three-story complex of 12 art deco apartments was built in the 1940s. Our client’s top floor apartment was originally on two titles. Each of these apartments had only one bedroom and one bathroom.
We identified that the value of the property could be maximised if it were transformed back into two apartments. Each apartment needed to have high standard finishes and features such as air conditioning to appeal to buyers in the Rose Bay area.
Highlights of the design include:
Bigger apartments than in the original design. The new apartments have two double bedrooms and two spacious bathrooms. One bathroom in each apartment is large enough for a freestanding bath.
The feeling of space we created within each apartment. We lifted the ceilings, shifted walls and selected space-enhancing finishes such as light coloured oak flooring and mirrored splashbacks in the kitchens.
Beautiful bathrooms. Buyers in the Rose Bay area look for something unique, which is why we handpicked feature tiles to enhance the bathrooms with patterns and textures. We included gunmetal and brush nickel tapware, timber vanities to add warmth and black framed shower screens for an original style.
