The owners wanted a timeless bathroom – the responding restrained design features earthy handmade tiles and a curvaceous timber wall  

Designed by Giorgi

From the architect:

Wider setting

Designed with a timeless aesthetic and richness of material, this home suits its design conscious owners.

With clean lines, large expanses of glass and a horizontal emphasis, the home takes full advantage of the lake views before it. 

Bringing the outdoors in and creating a seamless transition between the interior and exterior allows the home to feel much larger than its floor area.

Furthermore, the ceiling volumes have been sculpted to delineate areas within the home in the context of the otherwise open-plan design.

The vast, open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas serve as the hub of this home and spill out to the alfresco, balcony, sunken courtyard and pool through full-height and full-width stackable glass sliding doors. 

Glazing includes the efficient use of louvered windows, strategically placed to capture the available breeze. 

A raised roofline in the alfresco maximises the home’s vertical edges while capturing the most amount of natural light available.

To the rear of the home, the master suite has direct views to the pool and includes a spacious ensuite with a freestanding bathtub set next to a low window overlooking its own private garden. 

The last of the four bedrooms with an ensuite is located on this floor, as are the utilities plus there is direct entry from the rear lane into the oversized double garage behind the home.

Owner requirements for bathroom

  • To carry through the tone and feel of the main home while adding a touch of luxe
