Now unrecognisable from the simple bach it once was, this old-girl underwent a major facelift indoors and out. The brief was to create a place the clients could enjoy year round. Functional spaces and practical finishes were also a high priority in this busy bach.

The result was a Coastal Lodge aesthetic.  Oiled oak flooring, schist features and the colour palette provide a connection to the environment.  Versatile seating options in the living space take advantage of the views offered up by windows. Lighting features and the indoor fireplace are cosy in cooler months. Soft whites, blues and greys and warm wood tones are calm and breezy.  This is the perfect place to unwind in any season.
