ASCOT HOUSE:Project DescriptionThe Ascot house was an incredible find, built in 1925 in the prestigious suburb of Ascot, Brisbane, this home waspurchased from the original owners family. Ascot is filled with stunning turn of the century homes owned by some ofQueensland’s most prominent identities throughout time. The fastidious brief was to pay homage to the surroundingareas detail, classicism and elegance whilst infusing a practical and contemporary sense of usability with a mixtureof robust and fragile accoutrements.With local councils decision to insist on retaining the original character of the home externally, the internal palettewas created to flow seamlessly with this in a fusion of monochromatic tones and elegant simplicity.The master bedroom ensuite was designed with practicality in mind and with the intent to pay homage to an era ofelegance and classicism whilst infusing unique and luxury elements for a contemporary feel. The flooring selectedpays homage to Terrazzo in a handmade Spanish small scale tile with a continuous detailed pattern of black andwhite. All walls feature 900 x 450 Statuario marble tiles to the ceiling creating a feeling of exceptional fortitude andluxury that is both timeless and impressive. All fittings compliment the dark veining of the marble and are finishedin a matte black coating, a contemporary touch to a classic concept. The real win was sourcing a piece of originalpressed metal in a pattern complimenting that of the floor tiles, small flowers hand pressed into the tin create athree dimensional texture and when painted in Porters Antique liquid gold paint and sealed, its use as the bathniche splash back is the first impression of the ensuite and under the Marcel Wanders oversized Skygarden pendantlight, similarly hand painted in liquid gold creates a stunning visual.Behind the bath feature wall the client can walk left to the w/c or right to the shower, both wonderfully practical yethidden from immediate view. On either side of the large open entrance void, perfectly symmetrical black vanitieshang under black mirrors with a contemporary pair of sconces framing them which creates separation for the clientsas well as beautiful balance of the entire space.We were exceptionally happy with this project which was executed between July 2016 and February 2017, no detailwas overlooked and the clients feel their dream has been materialised with their one of a kind homage to a timelessclassic in a historic location.
