Although a significant intervention was needed to make the terrace habitable, particular care was taken to retain the original character of the building. The approach was to create a more functional floor plan and pull the natural light through the space. Opting to open the existing ground floor structure, Tom Mark Henry were looking for a floor finish that complemented all aspects of the design, including the existing sandstone walls and paired back minimal palette. The light colouring and deep, rustic knots of Havwoods Botany, alongside the quality and finish of the product, created a beautiful juxtaposition between colour and texture which is evident throughout the entire home.

There was also an acute focus on the interplay of texture, combining hard and soft finishes, contrasting matt and gloss surfaces, and light and dark to create intrigue and depth in an otherwise monochromatic palette. These quiet juxtapositions are an exercise in restraint and the ultimate pursuit of balance and simplicity.

"Our experience with Havwoods, as always, is extremely enjoyable. We find the sales representatives very responsive and easy to work with. We also love how invested they are in our projects! Throughout the process, we were required to order additional material and Havwoods were great at providing a fast service to ensure the build was not held up" - Tom Mark Henry Studio
