Impala’s client was renovating a terrace in Sydney’s inner west. The client engaged architects Jackson Teece to design the renovations and joinery throughout the house including the kitchen, laundry, study, bathrooms and wardrobes. Impala Kitchens built and installed all the joinery on this project.
The custom joinery was to be considerate of the colour scheme throughout the home and to provide practical, stylish storage solutions to complement the client’s needs and other store-bought furniture.
Joinery features to note:
1. Wall panelling reflecting that used elsewhere in the home was used in the main living area to create a warm, textured feel in lieu of the usual gyprock painted finish.
2. An enclave near the main entry was also made from the timber used for panelling. A handy place to store keys, mail and other miscellaneous items.
3. The TV unit was to be sleek and low-lying (to maximise outlook). The colour was a gloss metallic finish and the bench top a more muted aluminium finish for a practical surface on which to stand the TV and other decorative items.
4. The entry console and bedside tables were both constructed with aesthetics and practicality in mind. Matt black steel legs and a stone base support the drawer unit above with an aluminium top to allow items to be stored without the concern of scratching.
5. The main bedroom features additional storage in a metallic gloss polyurethane drawer unit with a flush base and matching benchtop to make the unit appear a unique piece of furniture.
6. Wardrobes in the master bedroom double as a feature wall with timber panelling and also an entry door to the ensuite.
7. The study joinery was kept neat, simple and practical. Satin polyurethane cabinets and an oiled timber bench top add warmth and texture to the space.
