‘Nelson House’, located in Townsville, Australia, was a neglected 115-year old homestead in desperate need of resurrection. Working in a depressed housing market where new large family homes sell for average $500,000, we had a challenge on our hands. With a minuscule budget, the interior design solution had to deliver a modern family home that celebrated a tropical relaxed vibe. However, working with the oldest homestead in the suburb, we also needed to celebrate the history and original beauty ‘Nelson House’ offered. This is the Eliza Doolittle story of home renovations and today She is a new woman, and we are delighted with the result.

A glamourous sub-penthouse with touches of southern California charm is not something you would expect to find in Townsville. Pam Ellis did just that on this CBD renovation project — her 23rd to be exact.
Initially attracted to the outlook the apartment provided, Pam Ellis bought the apartment in Townsville’s CBD in 2017. The entire apartment was stripped back to bare concrete. Even the original electrics, plumbing, floor coverings and tiles were removed and replaced. From there, every minute detail was re-imagined, the floor plan slightly changed and interiors — including slabs of marble — imported specifically for the project. Container loads of items were imported from the USA and Europe to make this a very unique apartment in Townsville.
From the custom American Oak flooring and solid marble bathroom vanities to the antique Californian bedhead and the 1950s Beverly Hills Hotel wallpaper, the apartment at 1502/122 Walker Street has a very international feel. Read more on the Altitude Remodel Here.
Complete Build Project Management
The design remit for this project was to make this centre a ‘sensory experience’ for clients that makes them want to dream big about the largest purchase they will ever make in their life - a new home in the new HAVEN land estate.
I wanted guests at the centre to remember their visit because it was so unusual - a definite talking point. I devised the futuristic theme based on up-cycling 2 disused shipping containers converted into a luxury office space. I sourced unusual cladding to disguise the former purpose of the structure, and to create a draw for visitors to want to come inside and see what it’s all about.
As soon as visitors entered the space they are transported into another world. LED lighting softened by sheer curtains creates a cocoon effect, with built-in speakers & sound system softly pumping out chill anthems.
Furnishings, whilst futuristic in style, were carefully chosen to consider past design icons from all over the world including Japan, Finland, Italy, and USA.
The gardens were also designed so that the shipping containers looked as though they are floating on a bed of bougainvillea, whilst feature native trees and shrubs frame the landscape.
This inner-city apartment is a part-time pied-à-terre for a busy professional family. With floor to ceiling windows (& subsequently amazing views), I needed to create privacy whilst furnishing this property with minimal fuss and maximum function. We installed sheers to filter the light and add privacy, and neutral black-out drapes to allow Sunday sleep-ins :) High-end furnishings and finishes were carefully selected to bring an overall ‘calmness’ upon entering the apartment, so as not to detract from the breath-taking inner city views of neighbouring botanical gardens. Beautiful clients help with the process - very easy to work with, they loved everything I suggested and the rest is history as they say.
Named after Nora Jones, the elderly lady who sold me the property after she lived in it for over 50 years. She sadly passed away soon after I purchased the home and I thought it would be a nice homage to her and her history with the place. With no air conditioning (in tropical northern Australia where winter temperatures average 25 degrees Celsius), very small rooms with very basic amenities, I made the commercial decision to demolish the original structure and build a beautiful 21st Century family home in honour of Nora Jones. I do need to point out that I LOVE restoration work, however, as the home had no historic features, was built in the 1960’s, extremely small, and was full of asbestos, I decided to start with a clean slate.
