St Huberts – Robson Rak
This comprehensive conversion sees a stately Victorian home, which had been turned into an apartment complex in the early 20th century, transformed into a modern single home for a young family of five.
The residence was reconfigured and restored, with a modern addition to the dwelling seamlessly blending the old with the new. The ubiquitous, yet inconspicuous presence of sophisticated technology ensures the long-term usability and relevance of the residence for years to come, while the incorporation of natural materials and considered detailing pays homage to the craftsmanship of the late 19th century.
The kitchen epitomises the response to the wider design brief for the project by flawlessly integrating natural veneer, stone and steel, which reflect the materiality of a period home, with Gaggenau’s elegantly unostentatious state-of-the-art appliances. Gaggenau signature 400 series fully integrated fridge, dishwasher and freezer – alongside the full surface frameless flush mounted induction cooktop – incorporate advanced functionality in a discreet way. In contrast, the elegantly unpretentious oven and steam oven that remain on display pique interest and complement the exquisite design of the space, further highlighting the residence’s perfect balance between the past, the present, and the future.
