Commissioned to design a home for a young, modern couple in the fashion business, reflective of their tastes and lifestyle. Key to the design was the main livings entertaining areas of the house which are raised and located on the first floor to take advantage of the beautiful views towards the ocean. Complementary areas on the lower ground floor are placed around a sculptural courtyard.
The entrance, with its lofty proportions and water feature, is a calm meditative space before the transition up to the main living areas, where the beach and ocean beyond is revealed across a 15m lap pool. Elegant, simple, monochromatic palette of finishes with polished concrete floors, textured concrete, stainless steel, touches of natural grey stone and dark glass animate the spaces.
