The design duo Kate and Ben Towell of Basic Projects and Wilson have changed completely the layout of the house, located in the Sullivan’s Island – an island at the mouth of Charleston’s harbor.
In a few words, all of the interiors walls were stripped down and resurfaced, and the roof, staircase and fireplace were replaced. The entire furniture was inspired by the clients’ surf trips to Fiji and Hawaii.
“The French doors are mahogany and meant to enhance the Hawaiian bungalow feel of the new roof,” said Wilson.
The floors are made of concrete and the white walls feature vintage pieces and designs from Hawaii. The house also has some brass fixtures, paper lanterns, organic linens, hand-dyed pillows and wool rugs.
“The clients love the Outrigger Club in Hawaii, so we found an original Outrigger canoe paddle from the 60’s and put it next to a few of their Surfer’s Journal magazine collections framed on the wall,” said the duo.
Basic Projects team is already known for some incredible projects featuring tropical fixtures like a local restaurant in the area of this house.
This project was entirely renewed! A garage turned into a living room with two beautiful light-colored sofas and a peacock chair with vintage Hawaiian fabric. In the house, you can also find a poster of Hawaii from the 1950’s, a vintage map and an old hula girl photo.
To complete this tropical look, the entire home features potted plants, a surfboard and a painting by the artist Ty Williams.
The home features two storeys. On the ground level, you can find the living and sleeping areas in a new L-shaped plan.
The home also features an open-plan kitchen and sitting area that is divided by a white fireplace with two built-in floating benches. The space also includes a minimalist oak dining table and two benches. The kitchen has white countertops and pale wooden doors.
On the other side of the residence, there are available three bedrooms, two with private bathrooms. “One of the guest rooms we call the Hawaiian Room. We took more inspiration from 1950s Hawaii than the current day,” said the design duo.
