A Grand Design ... in Tasmania
This curved residence, built over several levels, appeared as a final in one of the iconic series of Grand Designs (Australia). A curved design based on a heart it was mostly built by the client and his building apprentice son.
The clients commissioned a front door that would suit their 'Grand Design' home. We incorporated their chosen board of Tasmanian sassafras into a door we designed we designed and made to fit the frame. The door is finished with oil so it can be easily maintained and will age to a silver grey along with the wall cladding.
After its successful completion the clients commissioned more custom-made pieces including a vanity to follow the curve of the main bathroom (pictured) and a series of floor to ceiling robes for the principal bedroom.
After discussions with the clients about their requirements. We used our design experience and fine workmanship to make the vanity (images above) using Tasmanian huon pine.
