So often seen in European apartments, this new build home combines attributes of historic interiors with a youthful modernity. Graphic marble patterning and large-scale plaster mouldings imbue the entry with a dramatic grandeur, while the entertainment areas introduce a markedly understated vocabulary, with the use of vertical panels in cerused white oak, suede wall coverings, bronze metals, dark marbles and lacquers. Curated for a young couple raising three children, the warm materials, and play on textures, creates a cocooning backdrop to balance the formal spaces and reveal a more casual sophistication.
With access to their landscaped outdoors, the family areas at the rear subtly re-establish the visual language, paring down the classical references through simplified graphic forms, bold colour blocking, and a further play on texture.
Designed with a softer palette, the serene principal suite is laid out with a modern integration of spaces, using pale lacquers, polished chrome detailing, mirror and back painted glass.
