Our clients’ brief for the interior of this newly built home overlooking Sydney harbour, was to create a sophisticated, elegant family home emanating warmth, drama, contrast and comfort. We created a cohesive sequence of spaces throughout the entry level with a series of framed interior vistas, portals and screens, inserted to articulate scaled, comfortable spaces. These elements kept the floor plan fluid and light-filled whilst simultaneously creating intrigue, intimacy and connectivity.
A successful balance was achieved between the masculine aesthetic set by the architectural envelope and the elegant brief set by the Client. Considered transitioning of materials resulted in a dynamic juxtaposition of texture, colour and scale. Warm, raw, cool, polished and waxed elements are woven throughout creating an intriguing marriage of distinct but harmonious textures.
