ZouBuild family home in the heart of Brisbane

When deciding upon the direction of their new renovation, Christal and Chris Fysentzou knew that customization and innovation would be key to completing the modern makeover of their dream home. Recognising the potential of their 1980s Italian style brick home, the couple sought to incorporate a sense of light and airiness into the interior while streamlining the home’s aesthetics and creating a functional floor plan for their family. Through the clever use Stegbar’s windows, wardrobes and bathroom finishes in unique configurations, Christal and Chris were able to create a contemporary upgrade that married Stegbar’s innovative design and customizable products with their modern aesthetic vision.

From the home’s entranceway, the sleek contemporary design of the home is immediately apparent. Providing a welcoming entryway with considerable curb appeal, the use of Stegbar’s Statesman Aluminium Pivot door offers an impactful first impression that sets the tone for the rest of the home while providing ample security for the family’s peace of mind.

As you enter the home, one of the building’s most striking features is its rare internal courtyard that serves as the centrepiece of the structure. Fusing both the security of indoor living and the airiness of the outdoors, the courtyard is the ideal location for early morning coffee and evening cocktails following an extensive restructure and makeover that increased the space’s functionality. Featuring two sets of Stegbar’s Aluminium double doors in a chic black frame finish, the light-flooded internal courtyard seamlessly flows into the main living area of the home while providing ample airflow and entertainment space that perfectly serves the Queensland outdoor lifestyle.

To provide the home with a sense of consistency and flow, Christal chose to utilize Aluminium double hung windows in a black powder frame finish throughout the residence. While the choice of black frames provides a striking modern design, Christal found that these windows also possessed a practicality in addition to a timeless finish that suited the vision for their home. Specifically engineered for superior ventilation and air flow control, Stegbar’s customized double hung windows provide smooth, rattle free operation in addition to weather protection and peace of mind security that were unrivalled by other market alternatives.

This sleek and modern design continues into the home’s unique glass hallway, which serves as a stunning architectural feature within the home. Enclosing a previously exposed walkway that joins the home’s entrance with its main living areas, the striking beauty of the fixed glass windows function as a protected thoroughfare that incorporates natural light into the home while providing ample privacy for the family. The use of fixed glass windows continue into the home’s kitchen, with the addition of a Stegbar fixed panel glass splashback adding a point of architectural interest that expands views of the outdoors from the kitchen.

Within the home’s master bedroom, the choice of Stegbar’s bespoke, built-in Galleria wardrobe helps to maximise available space by including storage solutions such as shoe racks, baskets and trouser racks to amplify space-efficient organisation. Alongside these useful storage practicalities, the ability to custom build allowed Christal to seamlessly fit each wardrobe to meet the room’s unique ceiling height, floor layout and difficult corners without compromising on modern styling. As noted by Christal, “I didn’t have to compromise on my style, because Stegbar offered so many options on colour, texture and design, and the wardrobes integrated perfectly within the space I had and the look I was trying to achieve.”

The home’s modern aesthetic continue into the refurbished master bathroom, with the addition of Stegbar’s frameless showerscreen with matte black Jett hardware providing both sleek simplicity and sophisticated design that reflects the use of black highlights throughout the remainder of the home. Featuring striking fixtures and barely-there trimmings, the incorporation of dark hardware helps to add visual impact to the space without compromising the functionality so needed within the bathroom.

The space is perfectly complemented by the addition of Stegbar’s custom-designed mirrors that help to capture light and the illusion of space within the tight quarters of the bathroom’s floor plan. Having worked directly with Stegbar, Christal’s vision of a uniquely shaped, backlit rectangular mirror with rounded corners was bespoke to fit the specific proportions of the space without the overwhelming the design elements showcased throughout the bathroom.
