The design of this inner city family home is about lifestyle...
The space is large, bright, refined and modern.
Huge custom sofas sit perfectly positioned in breezeways, a bespoke fireplace opens to reveal a home entertainment system. The decorative elements rely on the subtle differences in natural texture : dark timber flooring; woven sisal; natural linen; teak and Calacatta marble.
Artworks by Judith Wright (Between - 2007) and Jonathan Kimberley (Not My Garden: Map of Unlandscape - 2007) add depth to the monochromatic scheme.
'Deliberately minimising the palette of colours and materials ensures that the architectural features sit strong within the scheme' says Steven Stewart of Phorm Interiors.
This is evident in the stunning staircase - stepped in recycled teak; the 2097 Suspension Light (Gino Sarfatti - Flos) & custom lacquered wall panelling.
The overall outcome is relaxed and contemplative - an interior that links large rectangular spaces together, connecting the interior to the exterior.
