Situated on a century old auction house and local landmark building, the Preston Townhouses offer a sophisticated blend of heritage and modern living for its occupants. Preserving its distinctive features, Arthur Korf found a balance of style and liveability to its high end properties.   

“We worked with the local council to ensure that the existing bricks were retained and recycled into the new build,” commented Arthur Korf.

“The project has a heritage quality with an industrial warehouse appeal to it, and combined with a touch of modern flair and luxury, the apartments blend suitably into the urban landscape.”

 Built by Varcon Builders for the Sylvester Trust, the renowned builder and developer recognized the need for balance of function, practicality and design for its high-end properties.    

“When we design a property, each room must serve a functional purpose. We incorporate the furniture to ensure that clients can sit and eat with the family without feeling restricted on space.”

“For the design, we focus on open plan living and lots of good natural light whilst ensuring a high quality on fixtures. I also see efficient heating and cooling as an essential ingredient to a good home.”

“The most important element is to ensure the occupant feels at ease in the space so that liveability is always achieved.”

When it came to floor coverings for the properties, the brief was to look for a surface that is clean, smooth and feels natural – complimenting  the design of the home rather than trying to take from it.”

Arthur looked to Karndean after seeing the authentic Korlok designs and hearing about the waterproof properties and lifetime warranty that was perfect for his pipeline of projects and developments.  

“Karndean Korlok’s click lock system allowed for a quick turnaround on installation and its waterproof properties had practical benefits for the home over laminate. What’s more, the pre-acoustic backing meant that it complied with apartment building standards.”

“We were also impressed that Korlok offered a lifetime residential warranty which is great statement of trust to our purchasers.”
