Living half a year on a yacht and the other half in their cramped Kangaroo Point quarters, two grey nomads decided it was time for a change. As they finished up their yacht voyages, they found themselves wanting to add some modern flair and more space to permanently settle into their apartment penthouse.
Though the view of the Brisbane River from this 12th floor penthouse was magnificent, the interiors left much to be desired. The site was cramped, dark and outdated. The kitchens and bathrooms were tired, after being worn for the past 20 years. The home was not only cramped for the couple, but was disjointed too, due to previous renovations.
The retirees also informed us that in the morning it became unbearably hot (with Brisbane temperatures you can only imagine), and also very noisy due to the winds.
From top to bottom, this apartment was completely gutted. New ceilings and floors were in place to form some sort of cohesion within the home. Granite pillars were installed to bring a freshness to the kitchen. These were paired beautifully with the modernised kitchen and timber flooring.
Fitted with two generously sized bedrooms and massive living and dining areas, space is no longer a problem. Hidden storage was installed throughout the apartment, so everything looks and feels just immaculate.
So, what about those hot mornings? Tinted, double glaze windows were installed, complete with internal blinds, meaning heat and wind are no longer issues.
This couple is enjoying their new, fresh and open home and explained to us that it is, “infinitely more enjoyable and so easy to live in.”
