Life changes and the home keeps pace
The home is representative of the non-static state of ‘completion’.
In effect, each gyration of the project represents another ‘incomplete’ end point – the home is a scaffold for ongoing change and the family has relished this fact.
The interiors reflect this also, with various finishes, materials and furniture continuing to evolve, as do the tastes and needs of its occupants.
The palette is a contemporary interpretation of a Scandinavian style.
Low cost pine structures and exposed pine ply sheeting makes up the majority of internal finishes, with various uses and formats of Carrara tile introduced on the bathrooms, kitchen splashbacks and floor surfaces.
The home is quirky, infused with the unique spirit of the family and its progressive domestic evolutions.
Not surprisingly, it is the integrity of imperfect, inert and low cost materials which gives the home so much of its spirit.
It is also an exploration into scale and texture, from the large public to the compact intimate; the house explores almost every scale available within the compact block, including soaring 5m-high ceilings.
In terms of texture, there is polished plaster, stucco and pine timber.
One stone is 4 different size formats.
