The outdoor entertainment space at 294 Creek Rd is to die for.
FANCY a functional yet industrial chic abode?
Transformed from a post-war home to an Asian inspired industrial delight, the renovation of the three bedroom property at 294 Creek Rd at Mount Gravatt East was a labour of love for vendors Maria and Al Tsudon.
Both designers by trade, the couple needed a sanctuary to return home to after working long days.
There is an open plan living and kitchen.
“We were going for a relaxed island luxe feel,” Mrs Tsudon said.
“Our life is quite busy so our space really needed to be a refuge.”
Mrs Tsudon said she and her husband “lived, sleeped and breathed” architecture, so the project had been continual over the past eight or so years.
One of the three bedrooms.
What they were left with is a home that maximises what space is available and celebrates the Queensland lifestyle.
“We named the house Yallambee, which is the Aboriginal word for ‘to dwell at ease’,” she said.
The bathroom has a double vanity.
By swapping bedrooms with the lounge room and vice versa, the Tsudon restored the flow of the house.
“The whole thing is such a careful balance of stark black, white, minimalism and the timber.”
The kitchen has a mixture of all different textures.
It now has an open plan kitchen, living and dining area which leads out to Mrs Tsudon’s favourite space at the property – an outside entertainment area.
Outdoors is the ideal area for any entertainer.
“We both love to cook so it was important to be able to have friends and family close while we do that. I make a pretty mean spaghetti and my husband is the chicken wing master.
“We’ve also got a pizza oven, spa and fire pit.
“We’ve had lots of events and spent a lot of time out there.”
Looking over to the studio.
The property has a separate studio, which has a sauna, and could be used for yoga, a creative space, or as an office.
