Adelaide Street,
South Hobart

An 1880’s South Hobart heritage listed cottage complete renovation designed by Designful focused on improving its thermal performance and implementing sustainable practices which was a challenge our clients and our team were excited about.

All the kitchen joinery was made from FSC certified black form ply and recycled Tas Oak timber. We avoided low grade materials like melamine and made use of the existing old shed timbers to make beautiful joinery pieces, including utilising the shed door timbers to make the dining table, crafted by The Bearded Tradesman.

In our client’s words

We had a tight timeframe and Skookom delivered. Their work was excellent quality with superb attention to detail. There were a few challenges along the way with the project (and what building project – especially on reactive clay – doesn't have these!) but any issues were rectified.

The original yellow pressed tin ceiling was reused as wall linings behind the wood fire, giving a rustic yet funky feel. The yellow theme was reflected in the kitchen splash back ceramic tile, complemented by green recycled industrial lamp shades. A very warm and inviting space.

This project caught the eye of Houzz featuring in “Room of the Week”.
