The Charpente

The Charpente is a beautiful home, perfect for retirees looking to downsize.

The Charpente


The clients wanted to live smaller without compromising on luxury, and our team were happy to make their home dreams come true. The Charpente explores the possibilities of cladding within the home, using a variety of different profiles within the design. The main feature of the home is the timber cladding in the front living room, elegantly flowing from the wall to the ceiling, surrounding inhabitants in warm, earthy tones, the perfect place to sit with a book.

Throughout the home, beautiful timber handrails are integrated into the design, becoming a part of the home and supporting its inhabitants. The hallway is lit by two large skylights, flooding it with ample natural light.

The living space continues the skylight motif, with three above the kitchen island to ensure plenty of light when cooking. The kitchen island continues the timber motif, with the cladding creating continuity from the front room and into the family area. The family area also considers the wood theme, with a custom television unit adding a point of difference in the home.

The master bedroom is exceptionally unique in its design. It features a stunning scalloped feature wall, a subtle but impactful texture. It connects to the courtyard, a beautiful outdoor seating area, creating the perfect place to sit with a book in the morning.
