Renovation Projects

Traditional renovation with a twist

This Palmyra weatherboard Worker's Cottage was in a state of total disrepair when Tooltime was approached by the new owner. The quaint cottage was overshadowed by crooked walls, sloping floors and years of dilapidation.

Tooltime was tasked with designing an ultra-modern extension that wraps around the existing cottage, but still paying homage to the the original owners of the house.

  • Location: Palmyra

  • Timeframe: 10 Months

The Twist

Super sharp lines, with a bold black exterior, punctuates the new part of the home that doesn't overpower the classic greys and whites of the original cottage. Hardwood floors, tall ceilings and ornate cornices fit well against the ultra-modern European inspired kitchen and bathrooms.


The home is an entertainers delight with vast open spaces to share every occasion.
