For the Teal Avenue Townhouses, the idea was to show what can be achieved with different finishes based on the same layout and budget. With two bedrooms and a study, media room, two living areas, a formal dining room separating the kitchen, plus a bathroom, ensuite and powder room, the duplex promises a comfortable lifestyle for its intended buyer. In the thick of construction, the Melbourne Luxe townhouse was quickly snapped up while the Scandi serves as the business’ display home.
From the outset, the kitchens were designed to be the focal points; visually beautiful with practical everyday functionality to draw people into the space. Sleek cabinetry, with integrated appliances and plenty of storage, thanks to tall 2.7-metre cupboards, are complemented by feature benchtops.
‘The kitchens definitely take centre stage in these townhouses and took the majority of the planning,’ Baz says. ‘We chose to incorporate three-metre long islands as this is where people tend to congregate. We really wanted to create a space where people enjoyed spending time.’
In the Scandi townhouse, the 2pac cabinetry features a muted grey tone and velvety smooth feel, and is accompanied by feature shelving in Polytec’s Angora Oak Woodmatt. This is further complemented by Laminam Statuarietto Porcelain benchtops and splashback in a matte finish supplied by Ace Stone & Tiles. A black sink matches the door hardware and the surface-mounted downlights by Beacon Lighting above, which provides just the right amount of lighting for the room. Completing the Scandi concept, the flooring in Plantino Engineered Oak drifts into the formal dining area.
