From the interior designer: Jennie Dunlop, Dunlop Design
Securing a cliff top site overlooking Pipimea Head was for my clients the beginning of a three year journey to execute the building of their dream home.
Brian Cullen’s sleek single level design including a cliff edge pool with infinity edge overlooking the Waitemata Harbour lends the home the feeling of being on holiday all year round.
The interior design brief
With my clients relocating from a large traditionally designed family home moving to a single level contemporary one was life changing.
The interior layout including indoor/ outdoor flow to the large paved entertainment area and pool needed to accommodate family and friends on a regular basis and be designed with a relaxed luxe resort vibe.
The design and solutions
Although the spaces were already generous in size, the decision was made to open the space up further by deleting the formal living room wall with slider.
The removal of the wall allowed the fireplace detailed with quartz granite, timber shelving lit with LED to become the focal point from anywhere within the main living space.
Entering through the full height double doors, the new 10-seater dining table with a bespoke chandelier takes centre stage in space originally allocated for casual seating between the living, kitchen and scullery.
With the kitchen able to be viewed from all angles it was important that it blended into the open plan space.
