Product Used: HW3572 Croydon Herringbone
Situated in a highly sort after North Shore location with stunning views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the owners of this home were seeking to improve thermal performance to enable better use of their home. An exposed western orientation lead to penetrating heat and glare from midday onwards, preventing the owners from taking full advantage of the beautiful views for half a day, every day.
Searching for a solution, the owners approached Look Design Group to help them re-design and update their home to optimise on the views at the same time as keeping the heat and glare out.
To ensure cohesiveness across the overall design, the external renovations were commissioned in conjunction with the interior re-design. Look Design Group worth with builders Reliant Constructions, to strip back the home and change the floor plan to incorporate expansive covered balconies.
The interior design brief required high quality finishes and details that were also durable and easy to maintain to suit a high-traffic family home. The flooring selection was incredibly important as it was to feature throughout much of the home. Look Design Group selected Havwoods HW3572 Croydon in herringbone pattern due to its richness in texture, colour and durability.
"It’s a very beautiful flooring product that also has a rustic element which makes it highly durable, so it fitted both the design aesthetic and the high traffic associated with a family home. The new flooring gives a lot of warmth and character to the multitude of spaces it has been used in."
