About This Project

Contemporary Traditional Fusion

Our clients came to us with a handful of wonderful ideas, some beautiful pre selected tiles and unique tapware. They simply required some guidance in bringing their ideas together to create a contemporary traditional fusion that worked together.

The original space was dysfunctional and doused in loud wallpaper. It had a very small shower alcove and a bath that simply wasn’t used. A bulky cupboard collected dust in the corner while the need for usable storage was missing in the vanity area. It was clear that to retain the traditional character of the room, we must retain and restore the bungalow’s beautiful original architraves and ceiling moldings.

The brief was to fuse the clients pre selected classic tapware, contemporary tiling and industrial styled wall lights. Specifically removing the bath and the incorporation of wall cladding in some form were also requirements. The height of the ceiling added yet another dimension for consideration.

With varied styles selected, the question posed was how do we integrate them without looking too dissonant? Rather than using cladding on all walls, we chose the long vanity wall solely as a feature wall. This provided the perfect backdrop for a contemporary wall hung vanity coupled with a clean flat round mirror and wall pendants. White matte tiles continued around the remainder of the walls at the same height for consistency.

The Result

The removal of the bath proved a winner for this family of adults, paving the way for a spacious bathroom and large walk in shower. Juxtaposing the textured cladding, oil-rubbed black accessories with the neutral stone and vanity, is tastefully contrasting yet particularly striking. These contrasting details pay homage to the clients desire for a contemporary traditional fusion while remaining beautiful and functional.
