English Tapware’s new Hecker Guthrie-designed showroom
Hecker Guthrie and English Tapware continue their collaborative design partnership with the opening of a new showroom in Armadale, Melbourne. English Tapware is known for their impeccable taste in bathware – as well as beautiful showrooms.
The latest addition to the English Tapware brand is a new retail space situated on High Street, Armadale. A testament to English Tapware’s love for refinement and detailing in design, this new showroom space is the result of a collaboration between Hecker Guthrie’s Hamish Guthrie and English Tapware’s Stephan Marshall. Inspired by English Modern style, Guthrie with Marshall have imbued the space with a classic Elle Décor UK style.
White wooden window frames soar four metres to the ceiling, dividing the area and lending a sense of strength and permanence to the space. A luxurious washed oak floor draws the visitor into the space and cleverly integrates a series of product displays into a single holistic customer journey. Flooding the showroom with natural light are six domed skylights. These also wash the showroom in a dappled interplay of shadow and light as clouds pass over. Enhancing the ambient lighting are tailored pendants by David Moreland, providing drops of colour throughout. Contained within the space are a series of display units, each carefully considered to offer the customer a unique product experience.
Signature Hecker Guthrie steel frames, powder coated white, enclose custom joinery which is fitted with striking handles from English Tapware’s cabinet range. Carrara marble benchtops and tiles complete the English Modern look and feel, while also highlighting the stunning fittings and allowing the product to be the hero. Tongue and groove paneling on the walls in Napa grey lends a soft residential air to the space, further enhanced by beautiful Russell Pinch furniture pieces, sourced all the way from London.
