Transforming this Ponsonby transitional bungalow was a project that we were a part of from the beginning. This was a complete rebuild from the inside out, the client wanted to it to feel more like a villa. Many of the features we used to achieve this were in fact a reinstatement from previous decades. Lining the hallway with panelling, plaster dome ceilings light features, patching and polishing the kauri floors all cane together to emphasis the villa detailing.
We split the existing bathroom to create an ensuite for the master bedroom. This reduced the size however we managed to keep a full bath by creating a wet room area using the space efficiently. All finishes were a mix of contemporary and classic to be sympathetic to the villa feel.
