Under Kris’s meticulous management, the Cultra Renovation project was transformed from initial architectural drawings to the complete execution of building works, turning into a calm, light-filled and bright family home.

Kris Turnbull Studios carefully restored the intricate cornices, blending charming original details with a significant extension to create a sense of spaciousness. With the addition of a new family kitchen, hand-carved marble fireplaces, exquisitely finished bathrooms and high-quality furniture, this project is the perfect balance between luxury design and comfortable family living.

The studio developed a unique, elegant and layered scheme filled with beautiful finishes, colours and patterns and Domkapa pieces fit perfectly! Shall we see it?

In the living room of the Cultra Renovation project, you can find our Alexander Armchair. This piece has a powerful and embracing structure where a high back smoothly connects to the seat cushion and ends on a swivel base. The arms and backrest slightly arch outwards, inviting everyone to sit. The highlight goes to the additional support padding in the back, held up by a metallic opulent counterweight, that can be adjusted in height and produced in a different finish.

Room with Elba Armchair

Kris Turnbull also selected our Elba Armchair for another room for this project! With an egg shape, this piece reveals generous shapes and a sleek look. The seat holds an extra padded pillow as well as the back. These two pillows provide maximum comfort. Elba armchair has an incredible feature: not only is the base a triangle shape handmade in stainless steel but it also swivels, so you can position where you want to face and play around a 360º base.

It looks perfect in this space!

Kitchen with Anna Chair

In the dining area of the kitchen, you can find our Anna Chair. This timeless chair design is the result of a mature awareness process inspired by different ideas and experiences. Available in four distinct versions, it includes two options for armrest customization (with or without an armrest) as well as two customization options for the base (four legs or a sled base). Concerning the base, you can choose a wooden or metallic finish. Meanwhile, the upholstered seat and backrest can be customized with contrasting fabrics, as you can see in the Cultra Renovation project.

The meticulous attention to detail and dedication to quality are evident in every aspect of this project. It perfectly shows the Kris Turnbull Studios‘ ability to craft bespoke, liveable yet luxurious interiors, tailored perfectly to their client’s vision.
