With the successful comeback of this age-old building product, red bricks continue to set the trend in home designs, exuding rich heritage and eternal charms.

This amazing project by Finesse Built, an award-winning custom home builder in Adelaide SA, combines the rustic beauty of red bricks, sustainable timber and beautiful veined surfaces to create a modern, stylish home.

Blackbutt timber boards are used in for flooring in the kitchen, dining, and lounge area featuring a red brick wall that separates the living area from the rest of the house. Adjacent to the lounge, the open space kitchen showcases square tiling as splashback with its back wall clad with floor to ceiling Wilsonart Traceless cabinetry from HVG Building Products. As kitchen centrepiece is an island bench with Statuario Venato, the most popular, marble-inspired surface from Smartstone.

“The client brief was for the kitchen island bench to be a hub and a place of gathering. The functionality of the kitchen was designed with the utility elements to the back of the kitchen so that the island bench was an uninterrupted space”, explained Finesse Build designer Amelia Head.

With a timber frame, the kitchen island appears as a fixed piece of furniture that can be utilised as a food preparation area as well as a dining table where guests can gather.

“This concept is exemplified in the leg detail and use Statuario Venato with striking grey veining that completed the other materials and finishes,” she added.

Above the beautiful kitchen centrepiece are rushed copper and mint pendant lights that add to the warmth and elegance of the unique combination of wooden elements and marble surface design.

Continuing the theme in other zones, Statuario Venato is also used for vanity benchtops in the main and guest bathrooms, generating a consistent luxurious feel throughout the home.

Inspired by prized Statuario marble, this beautiful surface features a luminous white background with fluid grey veining. It is one of 18 veined surfaces available in the Smartstone quartz surface collection.
