Another requirement was to create a highly functional, flowing space between the kitchen, scullery, workstation and outdoor entertaining and dining areas.
The kitchen located on the second floor expels careful tailoring of heights, between the scullery, tall oven units and blackened wall units – together with walnut-stained internal shelves – help define each unique space.
While a rich, yet soft black Fenix creates a moody, mysterious ambience – further enhanced with stunning Brass Pendant lights, carefully positioned over the dining table not to obscure the stunning view and to work seamlessly within the beautiful surroundings.
The finger tile scullery backsplash, neolith in the main kitchen backsplash together with the continuous movement flowing through the Grey basalt benchtops and mitred island wrapped in Neolith.
To access the media room a bespoke, oversized, slatted black wall doubles as a door that slides delicately into the scullery wall.
The sliding door is replicated to the adjoining media room wall as well as the scullery on the left side of the kitchen.
The scullery boasts a fully integrated fridge to complement the Izona fridge/cooler in the main kitchen.
Due to the oversized scale of these sliding doors/walls and the weight of the fridge these items were both craned onto the second level.
This posed a multitude of challenges with the vast steepness of the actual site and varying levels.
Another feature is the bespoke, slatted ceiling designed by the architect and in close collaboration with lighting specialists and ourselves.
We achieved a seamless, functional and soothing lighting plan carefully articulated within the slats of varying heights (along with hidden speakers).
This was also carried through in the entrance ceiling.
The laundry was to have ample storage with drying room for ski and outdoor gear. Extensive bench space to fold washing and a hanging area for ironing shirts.
The living room brief was to be functional and practical.
We chose a soothing palette to implement our natural surroundings and bring warmth into the interiors.
Soft green couches, tactile and textured cushions, matching swivel leather chairs, bespoke oak insert side table, round oak coffee table and a luxurious bespoke long piled wool ochre rug all contribute to bringing warmth, to help define the space.
Electric roller blinds were designed into the space to not obscure the views in the main living/kitchen/dining.
The media lounge was designed to be enjoyed by grandchildren and adults.
It has comfortable furniture, including beanbags, with warmth introduced through the theatrical ombre/mustard linen shears, hung on a double track.
