English Tapware opens new Hecker Guthrie-designed showroom

Hecker Guthrie and English Tapware have formed a collaborative design partnership with the opening of a new showroom in Armadale, Melbourne.


English Tapware’s new showroom space is the result of a collaboration between Hecker Guthrie’s Hamish Guthrie and English Tapware’s Stephan Marshall, who strived to inject the space with an “English modern” feel.

White wooden window frames soar four metres to the ceiling, and a washed oak floor cleverly integrates a series of product displays into a single holistic customer journey. Six domed skylights flood the showroom with natural light, and tailored pendants by David Moreland provide 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, and allow 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.
