Quest for modern simplicity starts here…

9 April 2018

The Quest is all the proof you need that our team can do sophisticated cool. As if you ever doubted us.

This super-smart new three-bedroom display in Treeby is sleek, modern and stunning in its simplicity. And that’s just the way we wanted it.

Dave Clynk, the guy in charge of all things design here at Plunkett, describes the Quest as a bold home that will appeal to people looking for big, light-filled rooms they’ll use every day and features that just beg to be shown off.

“The showpiece is the kitchen and main living area,” Dave says. “It’s a big beautiful space filled with lots of light and a wall of sliding doors straight out to the patio.

Exactly how high are those high ceilings?

“We’ve pushed up the ceiling height in the living area to 43 courses and adding highlight windows,” Dave says. “It’s given the whole area an amazing sense of volume that can be hard to beat on today’s narrower blocks.”

Is it an island bench? Is it a dining table?

It’s both! By extending the island bench to form a built-in dining table, Dave and the design team have blurred the lines between the kitchen and dining room. For an added touch of cool, the integrated furniture features a raking waterfall end. We love a good angle.

“The combined island bench and table shows how you can make a strong style statement while keeping the overall vibe clean, sleek and uncluttered,” Dave says.

Err … no fridge/freezer? No dishwasher?

Rest assured there’s room for both appliances. They’ve simply been concealed behind the kitchen cabinetry, so that they are fully integrated. It makes for a very streamlined look.

“We picked a strong monochrome colour palette for the Quest to highlight the bold features and the contrasting ceiling heights, which add further interest and definition to spaces indoors and out,” Dave says.

There are touches of timber and soft metallic, and lots of texture, plus a number of feature walls that help highlight the contrasting ceiling heights.

For street appeal that’s downright edgy …

The Quest is just as confident on the outside as it is on the inside, with a two-tone front elevation featuring polished stainless steel, dark window frames, a silicon-joined corner window, and chunky mouldings whose funky angles match those of the gutters above.

“Each detail is subtle but it combines to create modern street appeal that will suit suburbs old and new,” Dave says.

Delivering 235sqm of accommodation, the floor plan packs space, volume and style onto a 12.5m-wide lot. It includes a sunken theatre room that could easily become a casual second sitting room or even an office space for the work-at-home entrepreneur.

As with all Plunkett designs, the Quest can be customised to suit, or you can use it as your starting point by taking advantage of Plunkett’s free design service.
