PROJECT: 56 Moore Street, South Yarra



PROJECT: 56 Moore Street

LOCATION: South Yarra

DEVELOPER and BUILDER/DESIGNER:  Archie Contes – NeoVison

“A beautiful free-standing 3 bedroom townhouse”

Architectural design and style are evident in every inch of this fabulous residence.  This project oozes quality, with stunning finishes throughout.

In collaboration with Archie Contes of Neovision, Kate Walker of Kate Walker Design helped specify, source and supply the majority of the hard finishes, including tiles, stone, pavers and slab work.


Main Flooring:  Honed Bluestone in 600x300x10mm format, laid stack bond.  With minimal catpaw, and some lava lines, the bluestone specified is particularly consistent in colour tonality and texture.  The floor has been slab heated, which adds luxury to this already silky smooth stone.


Kitchen Countertop and Ensuite Vanities: Michaelangelo Calacutta Marble.  Very striking with strong, unique veining.  The grey veining works beautifully with the palette created by the white painted walls, and bluestone flooring.


Bathroom and Ensuite Tiles:  For consistency, the use of the bluestone has been carried through to the bathroom and ensuite as a flooring.  Modern, and minimalist gloss white subway tiles in the 400×48 format have been used on the walls, to create light and space.  Tiles were installed to ceiling height which creates a luxurious feel.   A feature wall of bluestone was also incorporated, to highlight the bath, and also, strategically placed on the wall opposite the mirror, to achieve reflection of the stone from many angles in the room.



External:.  Sawn Bluestone, to enable a flow-through effect from inside to outside, whilst providing the functionality of an anti-slip surface.


Specified, sourced and supplied by Kate Walker of Kate Walker Design.

At KWD we look at a project holistically. The sum of all the parts make the whole story work, and it’s this unique approach that sets us apart. The KWD experience provides a streamlined process. We specify, source and supply all hard finishes as well as carpets, rugs, custom furniture and soft furnishings, and manage the procurement, warehousing, freight and quality so every project is worry free. We work closely with interior designers, architects, developers and home-owners, selecting the ideal flooring, designing the perfect joinery and choosing the right paint colours for a wide range of design aesthetics. From finding the perfect paving stones and pool tiles to offering landscaping advice, KWD manages the whole design process. One contact, one invoice and staged deliveries ensure peace of mind. KWD's extensive global network of manufacturers, importers, agents and local wholesalers ensures the selected products are always available. Key supply partners are chosen for their ability to fulfil each project requirement, while our contract negotiation skills will always provide the most outstanding pricing. We often engage architects, draftsmen, lighting designers and builders to complete the design process. We embrace a consultative approach and develop lasting relationships with each and every client. It’s what the KWD team knows and loves. “Design is not a thing we do. It’s our way of life.” Kate Walker
