The central hub included the formal living and dining rooms, entry hall, kitchen, family room and office. The office was the only truly separate room in this space, which was one of the things to be tackled first. With the walls to this room gone it is now incorporated into the rest of the space. This was located to the right of the fireplace and is now included within the 'great' room.

The main l-shape of the kitchen is now a continuous bench with soft-close drawers and a run of overhead cupboards. The cupboards under the sink now branch off at 90 degrees rather than following the angles of the bay window.

The previous living and dining areas have been retained but updated with new charcoal carpeting.

The original exposed brick fireplace with timber mantle has been brought up to date with the removal of the mantle. The brickwork was then rendered and painted a contrasting charcoal. Finished off with flush mounted black granite floor tiles as the new hearth.
